The Football Association
Programme and Souvenir. The Football Association's English Cup Competition Final to be played at the Empire Stadium on April 28, 1923 between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United.
London: W.H.Smith and Son, The Arden Press, 1923. 185x120mm. 24pp., in illustrated paper wrappers, secured by two staples. Marking and creases and two, tiny closed tears to the wrappers which have had some recent repair to the spine. Browning and foxing to some of the leaves but overall a very good copy. The programme contains a history of the FA Cup, information about the two teams (both played 2-3-5) and the players and a section on the new Empire Stadium, "the largest in the world...In area it equals the Biblical city, Jericho". Advertisements throughout, many for cigarettes, sport and smoking being natural companions. A splendid souvenir in very good condition of one of the most famous FA Cups and the first sporting event to be held at the new stadium built at Wembley as part of the 1924 British Empire Exhibition.
