Little Jimmy's Breeches

    Newer Older

    Nice old hand coloured card- also from the antique centre today for 50p. On the reverse it reads - "D. Jimmy - I'm sure this is you, because of the striped breeches. What ever have you been doing? Have you still a lot of work to do? Ask Alice to put some patches on your jersey before I come and see you again. Cecil"

      The ball seems to be of the hard leather variety. My football kit was slightly better than the above chld.

      Yes, those leather footballs were really hard to kick! He seems to have just played against a team consisting of sumo wrestlers and night club bouncers!

      Ha! Ha! Cute. Reminds me of that Monty Python sketch from the Meaning of Life.

      I suffered trauma as a child when playing football. You see, all we could afford was hand me downs. I had to play in Man Utd colours.
      The famous red and pink. The white bits got pink because the colours ran, and me being a City fan.

      It does look a bit like it stoppuller but I think its just a trick of the light!
