  • Short Summary

    Excellent invention - a forerunner of table football, quirky stuff.

  • Description

    No title.

    Two men dressed in football kit play a novel table football game. Buttons are pressed by each player which operate flaps on the pitch. A ball is placed inside the netting which surrounds the table by a smart man in a hat (possibly the "inventor"). Frantic play ensues. The game is watched by smartly dressed spectators, one of whom takes a turn at the table. A top shot shows two young girls dressed in white playing a mini version of the game alongside the grown-ups.

    The predecessor of table football I guess! Quirky stuff.
