Historic pictures of City: 1884 to present

I'm in the process of updating various sections on the main site, starting off with the photo archives.

Below are all the team photos I've found online. There's 81 images in all, 48 of which are newly added. I'll be updating the other photo sections next week, including the historic Maine Road gallery, and adding a new section which will have photos of managers and chairmen from the 19th century to the present.

~ You can find archives of historic City photos at Getty Images, Media Storehouse and the Manchester Local Image Collection.

~ If you haven't already visited, there's a fantastic collection of 128 historic City videos here at YouTube. The collection also includes a fly-on-the-wall documentary about City made by Granada in 1981 which is definitely worth watching.
