Photographs of the National Football Museum and the Sir Tom Finney statue

For part of our Digital Newsroom module I took photographs of The National Football Museum and the statue of Sir Tom Finney outside Deepdale – home of Preston North End Football Club.

The statue of Finney was unvieled in 2004. It was inspired by an iconic image taken when Preston were playing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Despite the pitch being largely covered by puddles of water it was allowed to carry on, and a photogropher took an image of Sir Tom when he was on the ground, in a puddle, trying to control the ball. The image won ‘Sports Photograph of The Year’.

This is my original photograph, showing both the statue of Sir Tom as well as the acclaimed National Football Museum:

This one I cropped and resized to a 100×100 pixel thumbnail:

This image is sized 400 pixel wide x 300 pixel high. This wide shot shows the statue of the great Sir Tom as well as the uniquely designed National Football Museum:

This picture is sized 200 pixel wide by 500 pixel high. Its shows a close-up of the statue of Preston North End’s greatest ever player – Sir Tom Finney. The close up captures the ‘splash’ feature of the statue. In the background we get a further view of the distinctive National Football Museum, this view showing us the tilted windows which help make the museum so unique:
