This image is a still from the film "Up For The Cup".
Directed by Jack Raymond and co-starring Joan Wyndham, Sydney plays the part of a rather gormless Yorkshire lad who goes to London to see the FA Cup Final only to lose his money and ticket for the game.
A few scenes were shot in Yeadon, the children seen here were pupils at South View School, filming also took place outside Manor Mill when the workforce were streaming out through the mill gates.
Sadly, a copy of the film no longer seems to exist.


I was yrs old in 1931 and I remember going to see this film at the local picture house and at the time I knew quite a lot of the people in this photo sadly I cannot name any of them with any degree of certainty
