Framed sepia photograph of the 1893 Essendon football team; players are standing and sitting in three rows in front of a crowded grandstand.
Players are wearing a variety of Essendon jumpers; some are lace-up, some have round necks and turtle-neck collars; all jumpers appear to have the sash but it sometimes comes from right rather than left shoulder and colour of the jumper varies; jumpers have long sleeves, short sleeves or no sleeves. Players are wearing hooped socks. One man in front row is in white and presumably an umpire, he is wearing a white cap.
Photo is mounted on cream board with "Essendon Football Club" in black print above and "Premiers and Champions / Season 1893" in black print below it. Photo is in a wide wooden frame with no glass.
