Video: West Ham United the first 100 years

West Ham approaches the 125th Anniversary next month since being founded as Thames Iron Works football club on 29th JuneĀ  1895

For the purists like Hammers historian Nigel Kahn, this summer marks the 120th Anniversary of West Ham United after they were formed on 5th July 1900 on Barking Road following the disbandment of Thames Iron Works team.

This VHS video from the nineties now converted to YouTube this week by Rob Banks covers the first one hundred years up of West Ham United to 1995 and is narrated by celebrity West Ham supporter David Essex.

A two-hour retro production to pass the time with no Premier League football with some great interviews, clip and classic footage.
