Lovely piece of social history! Upstanding Yorkshire folk queuing up outside Headingley (Cardigan Road?) to see the 4th Ashes Test in 1934 (when The Don made his 304) Love the fashions, love also the front gardens at a time when we still had front hedges instead of only paving!

And surely the amateur-professional divide in cricket from the early 19th century is nothing if not political. A strictly enforced social division which ensured men couldn’t even change or come out onto the field together.
