032 – 1930 FA Cup Final (part two)

Today’s scans are 3 items from after the final. Again sadly no details on the back of the press photo’s but they’re pretty self-explanatory.

The first one was the ‘homecoming’ when the team displayed the trophy at Islington Town Hall, something that would become a habit. The second one of the cup on display was, I believe, the window of the club’s official photographers of the day, Lambert and Jackson. The teamgroup was an insert in a programme early the next season and finally a clip of our opening game of the following season when the cup was carried round the pitch.
