Photographs

The Collections include early photographs documenting the first team tours by ship around the world, the means by which cricket spread across continents. Other photographs capture history as it was made on the hallow turf at Lord’s, as well as Royal and celebrity visits.

Textiles & Equipment

A wide range of costumes, blazers and caps, as well as early prints on textiles form part of the Collections, most noticeably the very first known examples of The Laws of Cricket printed in 1774 on linen. Match worn equipment representing significant moments in sporting history also makes this collection truly unique.
