About this image
According to Trevor Brighton in his 'Bakewell: The Ancient Capital of the Peak', published 2005, the football team is outside the house of Robert Orme in Water Street. He names all but one of the people on it:(the back row, one unidentified) W.Charles, R. Blackwell, Revd. Fuller, G.Birley, C.Marsden, T.Spencer, A.Taylor, S.Orme, M.Gregory, T.Mellow, G.Allsop; (middle row, l-r); T.McGregor, G.Blagden, J.Hill, E.Thorpe;(front row) H.Ford, W.Pollit, R.Barton. The photograph is probably dated between 1891 and 1897, as Reverend Fuller was Curate of Bakewell for those years.
