Can anyone out there please help and identify from where the attached page may have come from. It's from a 1922 publication and is just short of A4 in size. This page containing a condensed history of Barnsley is numbered 131 contains an opening statement that needs researching. Prior to this document surfacing, the birth of the club has been universally accepted to have been Sept 1887 when Barnsley St Peters were formed following a public meeting. But should this unsigned and unattributed piece be correct then we may be looking at the redesign of the club badge and very Red faces at this years 125 year celebrations.
I am not aware of too many 1920 publications concerning general histories of Professional clubs.... Does anyone have any ideas or have come across other pages.
