French national library photo archive

Postby ScottishFA » Mon Feb 01, 2016 2:15 pm

I've recently stumbled across the magnificent sports photo collection at the French national library (Bibliotheque Nationale de France). They have digitised many volumes of photos from 1894 to about 1930 with a lot of football and it does include items of Scottish and English interest.

If you speak French, or even the odd word, you shouldn't find it too difficult to negotiate.

It is called the 'Collection Jules Beau' and if you have time, you can browse the entire collection here: http://gallica.bnf.fr/services/engine/search/sru?operation=searchRetrieve&version=1.2&startRecord=0&maximumRecords=15&page=1&query=%28gallica%20adj%20%22collection%20jules%20beau%22%29%20sortby%20dc.date%2Fsort.ascending#resultat-id-1

Or you can do a specific search here: http://gallica.bnf.fr/ Insert a keyword in the box at the top, and also select 'dans les images' (ie 'in the photos') from the drop down menu. As an example, search on 'Celtic' in photos, and you will come up with several images of their visit to Paris in 1921 including this action shot of their match against Cercle Athletique de Paris:

That's a great resource Andy. Some of the searches I did came up with 'Match Magazine' which I assume was a French football magazine from that era. The Celtic team photo from the 1921 tour is one I hadn't seen before. Thanks.

After looking through the photos of the Celtic tour I discovered that I don't have the result of the first match of the tour. Anybody? The list of tours on the RSSSF website gives the results v Newcastle United the following day as 3-0 Celtic.

6-0 to Celtic. See the Celtic Wiki, usually the best resource for this kind of thing: http://www.thecelticwiki.com/page/1921-05-28%3A+Cercle+Athl%C3%A9tique+de+Paris+0-6+Celtic,+Tour+of+France
