I guess this might suggest that there is probably not much around.

I have done a lot of checking and as far as I can ascertain there is vision of the 1949, 1950, 1954 and every Grand Final from 1958 onwards.

That would make a great DVD. Hopefully somebody puts it together one day.

19/5/1928
Norwood v West Torrens
Adelaide Oval

NW 0-5...5-8...8-9...11-13 [79]
WT 2-4...3-7...4-8.....5-12 [42]

During the half time break there was a naming of a western grandstand
A bronze tablet to commemorate the occasion was made on that day
This stand became the George Giffen Stand
This was done some 50 years after Giffen kicked Norwoods first goal in Norwoods inaugural 1878 season
Clem Hill ,star left handed cricket batsman ,  who played for South Adelaide , is said to have been the main man in getting the naming of the Giffen Stand
George Giffen had passed away the previous year in 1927

That stand was demolished in recent times
The Giffen stand is no more
The bronze tablet now superceded by a bronze statue of George Giffen , located behind the Western stands

Which is right next to the door to the rooms used by West cor the 2015 premiership, I think.

This is something I came across in a 1967 Budget, looking back at season 1950. I knew of the ructions surrounding Kerley's exit in the 60s, but wasn't aware of this.

"However the loss of the Taylor brothers, Fos Williams, centreman Gar Burkett (to Broken Hill) and Reg Zeuner (to Perth) seriously weakened West Adelaide, who missed the four for the first time in five years.

A political upheaval in the West camp saw the club make a change in coaches before the season opened.

Soon after the end of the 1949 season Brian Faehse was appointed as the club's captain-coach for 1950 by the club's management committee.

However the committee resigned en masse at the club's annual meeting early in 1950 and the incoming committee deposed Faehse and installed Jack Broadstock, who had transferred to West Torrens in 1949 as playing coach."
