Description

First Cup Final at Wembley, 1923 FA Cup Final, Bolton Wanderers v West Ham United. Bolton Wanderers photographic album with press photos of the Bolton team coupled with amazing scenes at Wembley on the day (the crowd sat on the pitch next to the side-lines and also behind the goal, action photos of the match, photos of the crowd queueing to gain entry to Wembley, also aerial photo of Wembley (taken from the airship) showing the crowd on the pitch. Also has photos showing the Bolton players before the match with the ‘lucky black cat’ mascot, and other photos of a never to be forgotten match including the Bolton players forcing their way through the crowd so as to receive the trophy. Worth viewing, you will never see scenes like this at another FA Cup Final, the only one which was not all-ticket and had an official attendance of 126,000 but many consider it was around 150,000. A unique, iconic collection. Good.
