Manchester City 2-1 Portsmouth 1934 FA Cup Final: Rare footage of the Club parading the trophy through the streets of Manchester City.

I found this rare archived footage and thought it would be appropriate to allow City fans to have a look at life in the 1930’s. Wow, hasn’t time changed? No Health & Safety Act (players sat on top of a bus), no internet, no TV, no mobile phones – I could go on.

If only people knew at the time what would occur five years later especially when the City of Manchester was bombed to almost oblivion.

The clip lasts a mere 1 minute, 14 seconds.

The newsreel can be found here here.
