On Monday I asked ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above?’ Well, did you recognise it? The answer is…
It’s Oldham Athletic’s Boundary Park, seen in July 1921 when the Prince of Wales visited the ground. Some reports claimed there were 40,000 were there, while others said the ground was packed with 25,000 schoolchildren.
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.
