The earliest surviving Merseyside derby on film catches two of Everton's goals in a 3-1 home win.

When the filmmakers only have three or four minutes of film stock on hand to capture 90 minutes of football and the ceremonies that surround it, it helps to have a game like this one, in which Everton powered in three goals against their local rivals in the first 25 minutes. Although Liverpool got a goal back, the later screenings must have made uncomfortable viewing for one half of the city.
