Aston Villa - History of the Beautiful Name

This is a captivating pictorial history map that traces the history of the famous name through rare antique maps and images back to 1820 where one such map shows the building "Aston Villa" from which the great clubs name was taken. Also featured is part of a rare 1833 map showing the first "street" to be cut through the Manor of Aston - named Villa Street after the imposing landmark Georgian Villa - Aston Villa - located on the junction of Heathfield Road and Lozells Road. Another feature shows the arrival of the Wesleyans and the building of their chapel in 1865, in 1872 young fellows of the chapel form a cricket team. Keen enough on their cricket in the Summer months, they establish Aston Villa Football Club in 1874 to play the new game of Association Football so they could be together in the Winter months
