    Cricketer Jack Hobbs scores his 126th century to congratulations from crowd and colleagues.

  • Description

    Item title reads - The master's record equalled. Cheering thousands see our ever popular Jack Hobbs score his 126th century (and one for luck). Taunton, Somerset.

    M/S as Jack Hobbs and another cricketer emerge from the pavilion, people pat Jack on the back as he passes. Various shots of the match, people applaud after he has scored the century, he leans on his bat and waves. The Umpire shakes his hand as do other cricketers, a man runs on to give him a drink which he shows to the crowd, he takes a sip and hands it back, the man runs off. M/S of the scoreboard. M/S as he walks off and people applaud, other men wait to congratulate him. C/U of him looking at the camera and laughing.

    Note: a yellow tinted version exists.
