PHOTOGRAPH: Balham CC at the 1922 World Trials


Here’s a recently acquired postcard of Balham CC at the World Trials in 1922. At least that’s according to some writing on the back. We know very little else.

We know it must be winter photo just look at those gloves!

The back of the postcard suggests 1922 could be correct. The horseshoe and TIC logo on the reverse tell us it was made by Thomas Illingworth and Co between 1919 and 1930.

The 1922 World Championships were held in Liverpool

C’mon digital world do your thing!
