A Egan, Lancashire Autograph Book
This is a quality autograph book compiled by A Egan of Lancashire. The book was purchased directly from the Egan family along with another home made book in around 1999. The book contains mostly cricket autographs pasted into the book. these include Cyril Washbrook, the 1950 West Indian tourists but also Wigan Rugby League side 1950/1 and England footballers 1946/7 including Billy Wright and Frank Swift. A lovely item loose inside the book are the autographs of the first South African cricket team to defeat England on English soil. They did this at Lord's in the test match at Lord's 29th June - 2nd July 1935. The autographs, on Lord's headed notepaper are contained in an envelope postmarked 30th June 1935.
