The Evening Journal (p3) in Adelaide talking about the coming season mentions the "Parks" club has recruited "Flowers from the Star of Carlton Club in Melbourne, and a good forward man." (Probably South Park, same person?)
1882 Flowers is named in a mixed Carlton team which played junior side Melbourne Imperial Trades on Thursday August 31.
In 1885 a player named B. Flowers was playing for Hotham (North Melbourne) and appeared in the team photo taken in Adelaide.
1885 Pennings' Vol. 5 has B. "Bluey" Flowers playing with Hotham/North Melbourne.

The Fremantle Courier (p3) mentions Flowers, a former Carlton (Vic) centreman playing for North Fremantle. Twenty years later could this be the same person?
