This article describes the inception and evolution of Australian football in Melbourne in the mid nineteenth century. It discusses the venues where the game was played, the occupational status of early players, and the inclusion of working class players and spectators. It also refers to the more successful football clubs at that time, such as Melbourne, Carlton, Geelong, South Melbourne, and Essendon.

Impact and interest:

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
