Notes / History The precise location of this picture remains unclear.

For many years the Commons Conservators authorised the use of certain parts of the Common for sports such as football and cricket.

At the time this photograph was taken, several matches were actually taking place simultaneously. If you look closely, you can see the multiple sets of goal-posts.
