From the carriage work sheds of Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway to becoming the greatest football team in Europe: the rise of Manchester United Football Club is brought vividly to life through the expert colourisation of over 150 stunning photographs.

Trawling through the archives, Old Manchester United in Colour brings together iconic and rarely seen images, turning them from black-and-white photographs into fully pigmented pictures showing scenes just as they would have been witnessed first-hand at the time.

Revisit many of the moments that have made United the world's most famous football club. From our first steps into competitive football as Newton Heath LYR, to our maiden trophy successes as the renamed Manchester United. Our post-war emergence under Sir Matt Busby to the much-loved Busby Babes and the tragedy of the Munich Air Disaster. The Reds' incredible European glory in 1968, right up to the fledgling years of Sir Alex Ferguson's glorious reign. This collection charts the club from its humble beginnings right up to the fledgling years of Sir Alex Ferguson's glorious tenure.

See what the newly-built Old Trafford looked like over a century ago. Feel the excitement and passion of pre- and post-war matchdays. View action shots from many great games over the decades. Enjoy portrait images of players, coaches and staff, plus some of United's greatest ever teams. And all in a way you've never done before. Old Manchester United in Colour allows you to view the past through the eyes of your ancestors for the first time in stunning, vivid colour, bringing to life a period of football history normally only documented in monochrome.
