Newcastle United v Liverpool (1901)

An Edwardian football match at Newcastle's St James' Park ground.

Non-Fiction 1901 7 mins Silent


The score finished 1-0 to the Magpies in this First Division football match. Despite having three cameras present on the day, Mitchell & Kenyon's operators missed the goal, and the hand-cranked cameras sometimes struggled to keep up with the action in a hard-fought match. But the shots of grinning supporters, packed on to the terraces in their flat caps and bowlers, more than compensate.
