Shurey's Illustrated - Football Teams


1900
Football Teams
Shurey's Illustrated
12 known

This mainly a piece of housekeeping. The team photos were originally listed with the Famous Footballers (Shurey's Illustrated - Famous Footballers). I thought the team photos appeared on the reverse of the Famous Footballers but this is incorrect so I've decided to give these their own spot on the blog. I doubt if the list is complete though. I have to thank Chris Lee and Phil Martin for their inavulable help with this project.
Shurey's Illustrated was first published on 14 October, 1899 and ran for 183 issues until 8 April, 1903. The following week it was renamed as Shurey's Illustrated Sketch Book but only continued for a further 10 issues (nos. 184-193) before being incorporated into Sketchy Bits on 24 June, 1903.
UPDATE (30-07-2019 19:53):  Gerard Scully has provided photos of the Liverpool team group and the front page of the issue it comes from. He also provided information on the Sunderland and Nottingham Forest team photos too.
