31.07.2014… 1947-1948 Promotion Souvenir Brochure…

It’s amazing what you can find in the loft…

As far as I can gather (due to a missing cover) it’s the ‘Evening Chronicle Newcastle United Promotion Souvenir: Full History, Official Records And Fixtures For 1948-1949’, catchy title… Anyway, to own it would have required you to outlay 6d back in the day…

Included within are a potted history of the club to date, details of key players, full appearance records, league placings etcetera… There’s even a section devoted to F.A. Cup run receipts…

Photographs of the current squad (as shown below) and the board of directors (obviously the best bit) are also present, as well as a few cartoons…

I’m assuming that it belonged to my granddad…

So… I’ve scanned it and uploaded the results to my flickr page, just click on the link to view…
