The 75th accession received in 1999 comprised three photographs; two show members of Cardiff Hockey Club, in seasons 1921-22 and 1922-23, the other shows the freshmen of Jesus College, Cambridge in 1915.
Cardiff Hockey Club was established in 1896 and was initially known as Roath Hockey Club. But the name soon changed, and by 1899 they had two successful sides playing against local rivals.
