Amazing. I would trust it because of the way it's picked up the different suit colours.

1973 fa cup, Leeds red derby blue ! How bizzare ! 🤔

What strikes me as odd is I know in 1973 I would still be watching telly in black and white, cue a famous line (borrowed from snooker) “And for those of you watching on black and white televisions, Derby are in blue”.  🤣

This is so well done, I did wonder if this was a genuine colour photo, and the copies we see in B&W were due to the cost of printing in colour at the time. But in zoom mode there are some giveaways that this is a superb piece of colourisation: The brown suits have a "flatness" of tone compared to the untouched grey ones, and the shoes look a touch different. In that era a brown suit would have had brown shoes with it.
