    In that era there were often games between teams representing companies within an industry e.g. This article describes a game between Colonial Mutual and AMP in 1921.

    By the look of the photo my guess is an AFL team but if you knew where he was living this would help.

    Most large companies have a heritage/history collection (but getting access can be tricky). Colonial is now part of the Commonwealth Bank group so may be worth enquiring to see if they have any info

    Taking a punt, I'd say the top one was Aussie Rules (18 players) and the bottom one Soccer(11 players). Although it may have been difficult playing in those uniforms.

    I think you can find relevant information on Wikipedia.
