Photographs, vintage postcards and other ephemera

Saturday, 28 July 2012


For the next three weeks, Sepia Saturday is being sporty for the Olympic Games.
This week I'm going with my first sporting love, football. I like the image partly for the serious young men and partly for the odd rustic twiggery going on in the background. This is Brandon & Wolston Football Club photographed by William Tallis, 2 King Street, Sparkbrook, Birmingham.

More sports and games over at Sepia Saturday

That is an interesting background! Great picture!

Great photo. What is particularly interesting is that a couple of them seem to be wearing neck scarves - what today are called snoods I believe. They are supposed to be thoroughly modern. Little changes.

They looklike a bunch of bruisers to me.

What are the ages of these guys? The one in front holding the ball looks like a baby compared to some in the back.

I love the old sporting photos. Look at those uniforms! I would have thought that those laces would have been annoying!
