Everton v Newcastle United (1903) (3 mins)
A film of the same fixture in the previous season featured more crowds than football, but this example offers great prolonged views of play. The film makes clear that however much the game may have evolved over the years, its essence is timeless. 'The Football Field' appearing in a large advert was for one of many provincial weekly football papers that were essential for following the game.
