Hi Valma,

You shared a photograph of George Waterford/Kreusler in a football club. I think this photo was upladed by my brother Geoff Hamilton. We are Kreusler descendants here in South Australia and the photograph is from our collection. The date of the photo is 1888 and it is of the Medindie Football Club which later changed its name to North Adelaide Football Club which still exists to this day. George went on to be the Secretary for the Club and is buried at North Road Cemetery near to the Club's Footy Oval. The Footy Code is of course, Australian Rules.
