Menu card for a dinner held on Oct 23rd 1909 in Canterbury in honour of the Kent team that won the 1909 County Championship, the second in their history. It also honoured the team that won their first Championship in 1906 - many played in both teams. Includes a coloured plate of the Canterbury Pilgrims pasted in.

Also signed by Lord Harris (to internal page), GJV Weigall, TE Pawley, A Lancaster, C.E. Harris, Walter Hearne (scorer) and 3 unidentified, but likely to be non-playing staff.
18 x 11cm. 8pp. Cream card covers, with embossed prancing horse. Original ribbon lost, hence loose cover. Paper residue to back cover, where removed from an album. Some grubby marks to covers and light foxing to internal pages. All signatures are still very clear.
