Tempus Publishing  (128 pages)  ISBN: 0 7524 2259 6 Paperback

This book in the Images of Sport series charts the history of Everton from their early days at Stanley Park through until 1946.  It illustrates the highlights of the period from 1878 to 1946, recalling FA Cup and Football League triumphs as well as providing insights into the everyday life of players and the club.  The book is particularly strong on the 1930s but also on the early history of the club.

John Rowlandss book should be of interest to all football historians and he says in the introduction that Everton have been at the forefront of a number of important footballing developments.  The club chairman pointed out in 1929 that Everton had pioneered the use of goal nets; were the first club to have a programme listing home and visiting players, giving their numbers and listing any changes on a board; the first to show results of their games on a telegraphic indicator; the first to set aside one League match as a benefit for a player and the first to guarantee a 500 benefit.
