    That's an interesting photo, as they are appear to be wearing a mixture of City's first two blue kits. There was a change 1914 - ish, but from what I can see, those were the only occasions when black socks were worn with the blue shirt.

    This has probably been put up before, but I came across it when I was looking up the old kits.

    My mother and grandparents would have been living at the top end of Grand Avenue when that photo was taken. It was a different world then when it was all new and there was a real pride in the place. My grandfather won the annual prize for the best kept garden on the Avenue mid-30's.

    The houses were all designed by the same fella who designed a lot of the swanky new towns that grew up in England in the 20’s and 30’s like Welwyn Garden City
