Shrove Tuesday Football Match, Kingston-Upon-Thames, 1846

Engraving showing the traditional game of football, played on Shrove Tuesday, in the marketplace of Kingston-Upon-Thames. This match was played between the 'Thames-Street Club' and the 'Townsend' team, starting at 11am and finishing at 5pm. The 'pitch' was considered to be the whole town and the river and the winning team was the team that brought the ball closest to the marketplace at 5pm. In the background of the image can be seen the Town Hall and the tower of All Saints church.
