Signed in pencil lower right by Lowry. Fine Art Trade Guild blindstamp lower left. Reproduced from an original 1953 oil painting of football fans converging on Bolton Wanderers\'s old football stadium, Burnden Park. Originally titled Football Ground, the painting won first prize in a competition organized by the Football Association. Lowry was very surprised when he heard about it as he did not know the picture had been entered. In 1999 the painting was bought by the Professional Footballers\' Association for £1.9 million. A record price at the time for a Lowry.
