Sources and Contemporary Usage

The Boyles Connection

A number of the cards in this series are based on Boyles photos. This connection was first noted when adding Lou Richards photo onto this website. So far only three matches have been identified.

What is particularly interesting is that the matched images are not for fringe players, but for popular players. If the cards are produced by someone other than Boyles, and they are using his images to supplement their own library, I would expect to find a Boyles photo of a fringe player where the producer did not have a good enough photo.... I would have expected that the producer had many photos of Lou Richards to pick from, so selecting a Boyles image is interesting.

Another card cannot be matched to a Boyles photo, but can be matched to an image from the 1951 Football Record. The 1951-52 images in the record all appear to be by Boyles, therefore this image is most likely also a Boyles image.
