I would particularly ask you to look in the following sets
Season tickets-Here you will find a selection of season tickets covering the period from World War 1 to World War 2
History/Brochures-Here you will find the brochure from the Newton Heath bazaar in 1902.This was effectiively the start of Manchester United.
Newton Heath had been struggling financially for several years.They had a bazaar(a fair) to try to raise some cash.The captain of that time had a St Bernards dog which was walking round with a brandy barrel converted to a money box.
The dog strayed away and was found by a little girl who wanted to keep the dog.Her father told the Newton Heath club that if his daughter could keep the dog he would save the club although there were certain conditions one of which was a name change
Bank Street,Clayton-United's home ground from 1893 to 1910 when they moved to Old Trafford
Billy Meredith collection-United's(and City's) first superstar.He played with a toothpick sticking out of his mouth.He played until he was nearly 50 and i have been told stories by United players that he was still welcomed in the dressiing room in the 1950's where Matt Busby encouraged the younger players to sit and talk quietly to him before big games
Pre first world war-Some programmes from the era up to 1914
Postcards-Here you will find real photos that were converted to postcards as they did in this era about 1900.
You will find action photos from the 1909 FA Cup final including the only known photo of the winning goal.
George Stacey collection-George played in the 1909 FA Cup final and here you will find personal photos from the training before the Cup final at Blackpool
"Not many of these buggers about"-It does what it says on the tin and you will find a single card programme from Everton v Newton Heath from 1889.
Although Newton Heath was formed in 1878 there is very little known from this era.It was a recreational club really and played friendly games,challenge matches and local tournaments until theyjoined The Football Alliance in 1889/90 season.
I hope you enjoy what you see.
