EDITORS COMMENTS This print captures a historic moment in football history - the Wembley Cup Final of 1935. The aerial view showcases the iconic Wembley Stadium, bustling with excitement and anticipation. Amidst the sea of spectators, one particular detail stands out - a Metropolitan Police Autogyro (Cierva C-30) hovering above, diligently monitoring security at this prestigious match between Sheffield Wednesday and West Bromwich Albion. The image transports us back to an era when air travel was still a novelty, adding an element of wonder to this already thrilling event. It is fascinating to see how technology was employed even then to ensure safety and order during such important gatherings. Sheffield Wednesday emerged victorious that day with a resounding 4-2 win over their opponents. This photograph serves as a testament not only to their triumph but also to the rich heritage of English football. Preserved by Historic England Archive Aerofilms Collection, this snapshot offers us a glimpse into both sporting history and urban development. It reminds us of the significance that sport holds within society - bringing people together from all walks of life for moments of joy and unity. As we admire this remarkable piece of nostalgia, let it serve as a reminder that sports have always been more than just games; they are threads woven into our cultural fabric, connecting generations across time.
