Historic Name That Ground – Week 2

It looks familiar, so can you name the latest ‘Historic Name That Ground’? If you’ve not seen this feature before then each week for the close season I’ll be posting an image of a ground taken in the past and you can see if you can recognise the ground. Some will be easy, others not so. You’ll be able to post your view in comments at the bottom of each page.

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

Can you name the ground featured in the image above? I know it looks a little familiar to many of the subscribers, followers and visitors to this site. It’s an image from the 1920s when this stadium was new. So, can you work out which stadium this is. As always, answer on Friday.

If you have an old image of a ground that you think it’d be worth including in this weekly quiz then please get in touch. They don’t have to be from the 1900s to 1960s – even ground images from the 70s and 80s may prove a challenge to identify these days. You can email me at gary@GJFootballArchive.com Thanks.
