I am trying to track down a photo of the great Dixie Dean shaking hands with my grandfather, Adam Black, of Leicester City prior to an FA Cup 3rd round match at Filbert Street. The picture was taken in January 1933 (Everton winning the tie 3-2 with Dixie Dean predictably getting one of the goals).
Adam Black holds the record for the most league appearances for "The Foxes" and a copy of the picture would be a great addition to my collection of memorabilia. Can you put out an appeal for help/assistance for me please?
Thanking you in anticipation. Kind regards.

You can start your search here:
Failing that try the FA - they might have a public access archive that is worth a look at.

Finding out the provenance of the picture will help you to track it down.

I feel that as the match was played at Filbert Street, the Leicester papers would have been a more likely source, but without success.
I will certainly contact The Everton Collection and happily make a donation. I feel that anything that can be done to preserve the heritage of "The Beautiful Game" should be encouraged.
Again thank you for your help.
