Unknown issuer - Footballers

Unknown issuer
Unknown number

These three illustrations obviously come from the same source from around the 1923-1925 period.  Yews joined West Ham United in 1923 and Hardy left Stockport County for Everton in 1925. I have been unable to identify where they come from, possibly from a larger sheet.

H. Hardy (Stockport County)
M. Joyce (Darlington)
T.P. Yews (West Ham United)
