Newest Review: ... and in chronoogical order. In between the glass cases which were well spaced out were information panels and quotes relating to something on display. I found this easy to understand. The main objects to see here I think are- 1. The Painting 'Football' by Thomas Webster 1839- This picture I feel shows wat football is developed from.
