022 – Leslie Knighton’s team

As most will no doubt know Leslie Knighton was Arsenal’s manager immediately prior to Herbert Chapman. An interesting, open and popular man in football I’ve scanned an interview with him from Football Favourites magazine, and also a scan of a postcard of the 1920/21 teamgroup.

017 – Clock End pre-Clock End

As much is often said about how we moved to Highbury to play on what had been the sports field of St John’s Hall (Highbury College of Divinity) I thought it might be interesting to show some scans of postcards of what the original College buildings looked like. They were situated on the hill above where Highbury is and were demolished after being burnt down in 1946, which is when the current buildings were begun.

014 – 1907/08

3 scans for you today.

The first is a postcard teamgroup showing the rather impressive looking London League Shield. Second is a page from Bystander magazine showing the splendidly behatted Christmas crowd at Arsenal. The third one, from the Northampton Daily Chronicle (04-05-1908) whilst not directly affecting Arsenal at the time, is something I’d call ‘Meanwhile, in Northampton…”.

011 – Woolwich Arsenal 26 France 1

Yup – you read the score right. A visiting team made up of players from a few different French clubs got a right tonking. Interestingly their goal was scored by the Arsenal reserve Hodges, who was playing for the French as they were a man short. The first two images are scans of postcards released at the time of cartoons from local paper the Kentish Independant which were reprinted a while back by Islington Libraries. The third is from a series of football postcards issued at the time.
