Anthony Keith 'Tony' Book was born in Bath, 4 September 1934. He spent a large part of his career in Non-League football with his home town club Bath City, before entering league football with Plymouth Argyle. At the age of 31, in 1955 he joined First Division Manchester City, where he became captain. Under his captaincy, Manchester City won four trophies, making him the most decorated Manchester City captain of all-time. Book had a five-year tenure as Manchester City manager from 1974 to 1979, and subsequently held various coaching roles at the club until 1996. Can anyone recognise where this was taken?
