This collection of over 200 photographs and items of memorabilia traces the course of one of English football’s most famous clubs, from its birth in 1882 to the watershed period of the late 1960s. As a founder member of the Football League in 1888, the club from Turf Moor played its part in the development and expansion of the professional game and, although the early years seemed a continuous struggle, honours were eventually to arrive. The two outstanding sides that evolved either side of the First World War and secured the FA Cup in 1914 and the League Championship in 1920/21 (with a record of 30 consecutive games undefeated) are covered in detail. Other areas of particular interest include the relegation of 1930, promotion back to the top flight in 1947, the club’s first ever trip to Wembley and the glory days of the 1960s - with the memorable European Cup campaign, another League Championship and a very near miss in the quest for the ‘double’. This superb selection of images from Burnley’s past is supported with expert captions from Ray Simpson, the club’s official historian and statistician, who has already published several books on the club. This pictorial history is a splendid archive of a big club from a small Lancashire town and will delight all Clarets fans - whether as a reminder of happy times in the past or as a fascinating glimpse into the way things used to be.
