Cricket On The Artillery Ground

A vintage illustration, featuring an 18th Century game of cricket being played at the Artillery Ground in Finsbury. This hand-coloured engraving after the original painting by Francis Hayman RA (1708-1776) Cricket on the Artillery Ground, Finsbury was first published in 1743. The wicketkeeper is said to be William Hogarth, who was a close personal friend of the artist. The wicket consists of two stumps with a bail balanced across them. The cricket bat is more of a curved club. The scorer sits in the foreground keeping score by cutting notches in a stick. The first major cricket match for which a full score survives was played on this ground between Kent and All England in 1744. The Artillery Ground in Finsbury is one of Londons most centrally located cricket grounds, situated just off the City Road immediately north of the City of London. It has belonged to the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) since 1638 and is nowadays surrounded by the Companys headquarters and numerous office buildings. It is best known as an historic cricket venue and the home of the original London Cricket Club. For many years before the creation of the Hambledon Club in the 1760s, the Artillery Ground was the featured venue of all London cricket. It eventually fell into disrepute because of uncontrolled gambling and ceased to be used for major cricket. (Photo by Popperfoto via Getty Images/Getty Images)
