A photograph of the Duke of York (1895-1952), the future King George VI, shaking hands with the Manchester City team at Wembley Stadium, taken by James Jarche for the Daily Herald newspaper. This was Everton's first ever apearance in an FA cup final. They beat Manchster City 3-0. It was also the first time players wore numbers on their shirts in a competitive match. The Everton players wore 1 to 11 and the Manchester city players 12 to 22. The Duke of York became King George VI in 1936, following the abdication of his brother. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
