Liverpool in “Gay Paree”

The Liverpool F.C. players set out on Thursday afternoon for a week’s holiday in Paris, the men being accompanied by several of the club’s directors and Mr. Tom Watson.

Thursday evening was spent in London, and Paris was reach last night after travelling to France via Newhaven and Dieppe. The selected Parisian Hotel quarters are the Hotel de Louvre, Rue du Rivoli.

This holiday has been decided upon by the management to commemorate the fine work accomplished by the Anfield team during the 1905-6, when three of the big prizes of the season were picked up (despite a depressing start), including the championship of the League’s senior division.
