FA Cup Final Vintage 1913-56

England flagHowever much the BBC marketing department might tell you otherwise, the FA Cup Final isn’t and never will be the momentous event it once was. I’m Scottish and while our Cup Final was a big event in each season’s calendar, unlike its English counterpart it really never came close to being a cultural occasion that fascinated an entire nation one Saturday in May each year.

Following a club that battled all the way through to a Wembley Final was a thrilling event in the life of a football supporter and we’re dedicating a couple of Vintage posts this week to some of the joyous photographs taken over the decades of fans enjoying their Wembley day out.
