                        This picture was found recently in the 1980 Belper Meadows Centenary book of which I purchased a copy.

                  The match took place on the 2nd June 1946 at Belper and is of the first innings as Allestree batted first.

                  Rain abandoned the game in the first over of Belper reply.
