Peter Essex added: "... Although I can't recognise him in this photo I have reason to suspect that my grandfather William Frank Essex played for this club to some extent or another between the approximate years 1904 and 1912. Does this trigger any recollection with Olivia or anybody else who can may have a connection with this photo?".
