1920s Cambridge University Rugby team photos
DescriptionSupremely evocative set of four framed Cambridge University Rugby Team photographs spanning the years 1922 to 1925. All in their original mounts and frames. St John's College Rugby XV 1922-1923 - runners up knock out competition. St John's College Rubgy XV 1923-1924 St John's College Rugby XV 1924-1925 Cambridge University Rugby Seniors Match October 1924 All photographed, mounted and framed by E Stern and Sons of Cambridge with hand executed calligraphy and armorials. Over their very nearly 100 years they have suffered a little from the ravages of time and perhaps a little boisterous behaviour - the former evidenced by holes made during occasional visitations from Mr Woodworm (this now historic and gone) and the latter by some scuffing, scraping and soiling of the mounts as a result of broken glass in three of them (this long ago replaced). All in all however a wonderful step back in time to the days when young gentlemen fought honourably upon the playing fields of old England........
