Historic Name That Ground – Week 1

For a few years now I’ve been posting a ‘name that ground’ quiz during the close season, but instead of focusing on modern images, perhaps at an unusual angle, I’ve been posting images from the past. Typically, my images of grounds have been from the 1920s to 1950s.

Now, for the first time on www.GJFootballArchive.com I’m posting them here. Each week for the next few weeks I’ll post an image of a football ground taken in the past and you can see if you can recognise the ground. Some will be easy (believe it or not there are some grounds that have not changed much in all those decades!), others not so. You’ll be able to post your view in comments at the bottom of each page.

The following Friday I’ll post the answer. So here goes….

Can you name the ground featured in the image above?

It’s a nice easy one to start with. Bonus points (though I’m not really keeping score!) for anyone who can tell me what the specific event was. Leave your comments below.

    Looks like Jack London at White Hart Lane, although Joe Bugner fought there too I think?

    Goodison Park
