Football related- can anyone help?

Postby urban rambler » Sat 04 May, 2019 8:13 pm

If I can manage to attach a photo, I was hoping someone would have an idea of the occasion. It was among family photos, and wasn't a postcard format.
If the photo needs reorientation, could someone help, as I've not been successful attaching this previously. Many thanks.

Is this the end of the story ...or the beginning of a legend?

Sorry that I cannot help you urban rambler but I hope you find out. It's certainly a very impressive trophy.

Like Leodian, little of any use to add. I agree it is an impressive trophy and given there are almost certainly 12 or 13 shields on the vertical part of the base and a further 2 on the almost horizontal slope of the base then it had been won 13 or 14 times before. A bit hard to date but given the one suit present and the lace up collars I'd suspect very early 20th Century rather than 19th but it is very much a guess.

The football itself looks very similar to the one pictured on the website at the link below. According to that site this type of ball was common until 1900.
