No lettering Miv. I think Chapesse is on to some thing with A.E.Dobson as a candidate.

Well at least we now know it's the Kings Lynn Borough arms.
It could be he was a member of 'Kings Lynn Cycling and Athletics club'
According to Kellys Directory 1912 that is the only club mentioned with athletics in its title.

Another old postcard. Not sent, so no postmark to give a date, although printed info says "Inland: halfpenny stamp. Foreign: one penny". Possibly The Walks if a Lynn team.

The back of the card. I recognise the name of Massingham, not certain about any of the others?

The venue is Lynn Football ground i think. The gate and the wall you can see in the background
are the gates that open unto Tennyson Av.

Lynn vs. Manchester write up from April 1907 so most of the players in the very first photo on this thread played in this game.

Lynn vs. Yarmouth Fearnoughts, October 1896 write up in 3 parts. My Great Uncle, Ernie Gay, was goalkeeper for several years for the club. His wife was Elsie (nee Stannard) Gay, was a cleaner for a law firm for many years, retiring in her 80's.
