George Chilvers  is a Wigan Athletic buff who also does a brilliant line in colourizing old photographs. 
The match pictured here is between two great old Glasgow clubs, Third Lanark and Queen’s Park.  This was the semi final of the Glasgow Charity Cup played on 4th May 1901. Thirds won 1-0 and went on to beat Celtic in the final. 
The venue is  Kelvingrove Park, The Glasgow Exhibition Grounds, with Glasgow university in the background. Kelvingrove Park was a temporary football venue that staged matches during the 1888 International Exhibition (a Scotland XI played Canada) and during the 1901 International Exhibition.
