1858 Stereoview “The Wall Game”


The "Wall Game", an early  precursor to modern football, began at Eton as early as 1766 and later developed into the ‘Field Game”. This game, played with eleven men per side was credited with influencing the American game to be played with that same number of men.

One of the earliest stereoviews or photos from football’s beginnings.
