I’m happy to respond to photo requests – we have most years although not many of Hambledon 1775 …


Amateurs to the left, pros to the right – some pros like Newman & Livsey had not yet been ‘demobbed’.

All the 1919 matches were over two (longer) days.

Cricket Archive records a three game cricket week for 1919 (starting on a Monday). A rather modern looking cowshed building:).

Hah! Alan Rayment just rang me having seen it and recalled the pros’ dressing room! The 1919 season didn’t start until 9 June and those three matches (August) were at Southampton, Bristol & Weston-Super-Mare.

Thanks for putting the 1919 photo on the blog Dave. Was that the pros’ dressing room?

That’s it Sean. Although not I think from the 1960s onwards when everyone changed in the pavilion (Is that right? From 1963 perhaps?)

I first watched HCC at Dean Park in 1958, and regularly from 1960. Certainly from at least 1960 onwards all players came out from the main pavilion. The ‘cow shed’ was used by the umpires.
