1937 - Hartlepool Rovers v Oakes XV

What we know about this image :

A snap of the  1937 Oakes match, which marked the Silver Jubilee of R F Oakes bringing his International XVs annually to  the  Friarage Field.  Interestng to see car parking was a priority even in those days!

The series had started in 1912 and continues today with a R F Oakes week end marking the end of Rovers season, now today held at their ground at the New Friarage in West View Road.
