1935 New Zealand All Blacks v London, Lyons Sports rugby sheet: Hardly ever seen yet this pink A4 card, half of the original size, is Vol. 11 & No 556 of what was apparently a weekly newspaper style opinion piece produced on the back of the menus for Lyons’ Corner Houses. This is the ‘Late London Edition’ for Nov 3, 1935, leading on, surprisingly, the less-than-splendid form of the All Blacks, ahead of the London Counties match. Nicely illustrated with a shot from the Somerset & Glos All Blacks clash. Fascinating and different (and the menu!) VG.
