Found this vintage, earliest footage of the 1909 VFL grand final between Carlton and South Melbourne.
If you pause the video at the 4.24 min mark and hit the box that shows full screen, you can just see West Adelaide printed or a banner hanging on the score board.
I'd love to know why it's on the scoreboard at the MCG. Could it be advertising for the winner to take on West Adelaide as Champions of Australia?.
Great video to watch.
