On these year pages you will find the Carlton team squads. (generally 20 - 24 players) However, on some pages there are both the team squad and the actual Carlton team line-ups. (the team that took the field) These line-ups have been compiled from various newspapers via the State Library of Victoria (SLV) and Trove. Some have the name of the contributor adjacent to them, for example (Mark Pennings or M. P.), which have been sourced by Dr. Mark Pennings from the Queensland University of Technology and kindly provided to Blueseum.
Mark has extensively researched the Pre VFL era and many of his line-ups come from the final editions of The Herald which unfortunately the SLV do not have. Mark has also written his five volume "Origins of Australian Football," essential reading for all those who are interested in the beginnings and the history of Australian Football up to end of 1896.
Highlighted years indicate Carlton premierships.
