Vintage photograph of the Aston Villa football team 1896/97, league and FA Cup winners. I do not know when the photograph was produced but it was produced by Albert Wilkes who played for Aston Villa from 1898. Before playing for Aston Villa he played for West Bromwich Albion. It is recorded that in 1911 Albert Wilkes was a professional photographer at 45 Legge Street, West Bromwich. The top left corner has some heavy creasing.
