Guessing this is at Villa Park, circa 1949.

Bramell Lane where it was reported that the Sunderland players kept giving the ball away to players in red & white shirts

 

 

Newspaper cutting about the "visitors". Not dated & no idea which newspaper, could it be the Journal or Chronicle for a derby game at Newcastle??

What a great example of the old days, forget the fashion and the suitcase, Dad is not only smoking in front of club officials but also in front of the "paparazzi". Thats how it was in those days, as proved when The Director's presented Dad with a silver cigarette case for 25 years service!!

No idea when or where, can you help ??
