    Item title reads: "Honours even!. England - captained by A.G. Bower, famous Corinthian - and Wales, score 3 goals each in Association Football International."

    Wrexham, Wales

    M/S of both teams, followed the captains going through the usual routine of shaking hands, with the referee and tossing a coin. There is a shot of a header and the goalkeeper makes a save.

    Note: One of the captains looks very tall compared to the tiny referee.
