I have one it was an excellent read. Off topic but see the picture that is your banner on the site, in your research did you ever find the names of the people in it? It's the last photo call at Kinning Park but the ones I've seen don't have names.

Thanks mate. I take it there never was any writing below photo that said who everyone was, and you are using your own knowledge to name these ones? As there are not many team photos from the earliest days I thought if the names were available for this one then we could use pics for RangersPedia.

We matched the faces with other pics that we've gathered over the years mate.

The 1877 team pic also helped.
