Description

Rare early 1899 South XV v North XV mounted Rugby Photograph: With damage to mount but virtually none to the actual 120-yr old image, a highly atmospheric, sharp and interesting shot of the South team at Bristol in what was really the English trial of the time: this one being just four years after the 'Great Split' weakened the English game with the decision of many Northern clubs to form what became the Rugby League. Team fully named to rear. Image VG.
