Description :

Little is known about composer Reginald Stoneham other than he was a song writer who lived in St Kilda, Melbourne.

Stoneham's music was published widely, usually with local publishers and sometimes by himself. His themes were largely based on localities, sporting pastimes (including this one dedicated to the West Adelaide Football Club), patriotic songs and songs about new technologies such as the gramophone. He also undertook commercial commissions and dance and salon pieces for the piano.

The West Adelaide Football Club (formed in 1891) had a very successful year in 1911, winning both the SANFL premiership and the Chapions of Australia. It was a golden era for the club who won premierships between 1908-09, 1911-12, and went on to further success in 1927, 1947, 1961, 1983. Th team also won the Champions of Australia earlier in 1908.
