Now this is rather awesome.

The Grand Final of the Aussie rules footy season is almost upon us, one of the oldest sporting competitions in the world. As a reminder of just how old it is, recently footage has been discovered of it being played – from 1911. And it is actually only the fifth oldest footage known to exist.

One thing of interest is to see what the people in the crowd are wearing – women in their big hats and men in their three piece suits. It was a different time indeed.
