Old Photos of Witham

Witham Football Club, c.1893

Taken: 'Believed to be 1893', Ref: M2850

Witham Town Football Club. Back row, left to right, F Berry, F Bawtree, A Snell, T Bevington, A Ingles, F Pluck. Front row (seated), left to right, J Bawtree, F Smith, F Lewis, W Shelley, C Martin. 

The inscription continues ‘Players held the following occupations: bricklayer’s labourer, postman, medical student, clergyman’s son, gentleman, army cadet, clothier, lawyer, book stapler, draper’s manager, postal clerk’. This is all part of the same inscription which includes the words ‘believed to be 1893’ so it would not have been written at the time the photo was taken, and it is not clear where the information comes from.
