Searching for Edgar Field on Fairfield Road, Derby.

“In May 2008, a photograph of the 1876 England team was discovered in the archives of the Derby City Council Local Studies Library by Peter Seddon. Field had sent the photograph to the Derbyshire Football Express, and the picture was used in an article published on the 50th anniversary of the match. This is believed to be the earliest known picture of an England football team”
