A Football Team

Football teams do seem to give us a problem at Market Lavington Museum. Here’s another photo where our only caption says ‘photograph, football players, Market Lavington, Wiltshire’. There’s no date, no place and no names.

Before we get into enlarged photos of the players, let’s just take a look at the back.

The message written on the card back

The message written on the card back

Someone has written a message on the back which reads ‘Terrible fat. More exercise needed you say.’ The man sitting second from left is marked with an X. Could he be the writer?

Let’s now zoom in on groups of men in the hope that someone out there can identify them.
