Anyone has retro backgrounds pack? I mean black-white pics of football before 1970, not before 1990 or so :)

Baw, here's the pack with retro backgrounds from the old site that should be added to the Download section I think: https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=5784. However, it contains mostly colored pictures and many of them from 70s-80s while I'm looking for more old ones. But this one is unique so we should keep it here.

And I also think we should put into Downloads this huge CAM megapack with backgrounds that contain 5256 pictures (800x600) https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=14216 . Please pay attention to it, I think it's big enough to be popular.

Here is the picture files from CM2 games.

I spend enough time making my retro dbs so maybe someone might fancy making these into useable 0102 pictures for retro updates from mid 90s.

I tried to convert and open some files for trial and I don't think it's worth it. The content of the images is very nice and they would be beautiful backgrounds, but the quality of the images is really very low, if in addition to being converted (you always lose some quality in this step) they zoom in as well, I think they are bad.
I'll try to do all the work anyway (maybe some like them anyway).
For this purpose I found the free "IrfanView" program very useful.

Thinking out loud, Sir Nick managed to convert some of the pictures in his 97 thread and they are sharp and look amazing, will have a look in that thread later after work.
