Coloured & Tinted

Football books and Magazines published in the late 1940’s progressing to the early 1960’s used a unique photographic process, the photograph was taken on a large format camera the negative (the plate) created an extremely high quality finished print. The print was then hand coloured/tinted giving an innovative effect. In many cases features were added like the crowed in the background sometimes even the ball.

The best known Publisher to use this process was L.T.A Robinson in their Publication The Big Book of Football Champions; Charles Buchan also used the same agency ‘Topical Colour Process Syndicate Ltd (London) in the Football Monthly Magazine and the Soccer Gift Book.
