Ed Cohen at Oval Nets

A dream comes true for this schoolboy as he practices in the nets at the Oval, captured in wonderful Kodachrome

Thousands of cricket-crazy school boys have dreamed of playing at the Oval. Young Ed Cohen’s experience in the nets must have been a dream come true, and happily it was captured for posterity on Kodachrome film for him, his family and now us to enjoy. The rest of his family are also introduced in the garden at the start of the film, while the end features a trip to see the guards at Buckingham Palace.
