TitleOld Trafford Bar
DescriptionThe crowd after a football match between Burnley and Sheffield United at Old Trafford on 28th March 1914. The Nottingham Journal from 30th March 1914 reported 'extraordinary interest was aroused by the meeting of Burnley and Sheffield United at Old Trafford and a record crowd assembled, of which the greater part came from the East Lancashire town, where many of the mill hands ceased work earlier than usual. Special trains were run to Manchester almost every half-hour, and throughout the forenoon the Burnley colours of claret and blue were seen all over the town. There was also a large contingent from Sheffield, and well over fifty thousand.'
