From the publisher:
This is a mini version of the fascinating "100 Years of Football", with photographs hand-picked from the Press Association's archives. It is an essential and compelling addition to the bookshelves of fans of the sport. It is also a unique insight into our recent history; the crowds and backgrounds tell a story of their own.
Hand-picked by PA Photos' own archivists, most of these images have lain unseen since they were used as news pictures when they were first taken. Each image has been scanned especially for these books, many from glass plates, ensuring the best possible quality of reproduction. Fans of football will find these books an essential and compelling addition to their shelves; a chance to see the people and witness the great moments of the last hundred years of the sport in Britain.
The general reader will be equally fascinated by the unique insight into our recent history that these pictures provide: to modern eyes, the crowds and backgrounds are as interesting as the subjects themselves.
