In 1954, only the three youngest Pilgrim brothers remained;
|My Great Grand Uncles - Mark (72), Perce (70) and Ned Pilgrim (67)|
About 50 years earlier the seven brothers were all wearing suspenders (and moustaches).
Cricket was their game of choice and the team was very well known and feared in the area. Cricket was a family event with seven brothers and their brother-in-law in the one team. Many of you would have seen this photo previously but I feel that it is worthy of another appearance.
A few years later, Mark and Ned wore stripes, while brother Bob was the trainer.
Maybe Perce was on his honeymoon?
Australian Football Finals are in September and Perce was married Wednesday 6th September 1911.
This post was inspired by Sepia Saturday; 3 men, suspenders and stripes!
