Non-Fiction 1905 3 mins
Their opponents have yet to be identified, but this footage of Hull City (in dark stripes) at The Boulevard is believed to be from the 1904-05 season, their very first as a club. Although this would have been 'only' a friendly - which might explain the many empty seats - the all-male crowd are clearly in good spirits, waving and cheering at the camera.
For the 1905-06 season, their first in the Football League, Hull City played their home games at the Anlaby Road Cricket ground, before moving to their own stadium, Anlaby Road, in March 1906.
