Marks & Spencer - Stanley Matthews Picture Album ~ Stars of Today (3)


1948-49
Stanley Matthews' Picture Album ~ Stars of Today
Marks & Spencer / Stanley Matthews' Football Album
71

Following on from Bob Thomas' help recently, Paul Briers has been in touch and very kindly sent scans of all the pages featuring the Stars of Today. He also informs me that there are 71 players, not 72, as you'll see in the illustrations. I presumed, wrongly, that as some pages had 12 photos there must be 72 in total! I suppose there is in a way, a Stanley Matthews himself looks through the book...
