Bygones – Notts Football Team Photos 1900-1949

We have been donated a number of fabulous photos of Nottinghamshire Football Teams from the early half of the 20th century with some famous names that you might have heard of and some not so well known sides from across the county and city of Nottingham. We are always looking to add more which is to the benefit of the sporting people of Notts so please email us at and we’ll not only add to our database for all to see but we’ll also tweet the best ones for everyone to see over twitter.
