As usual, I asked on Monday: ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above?’ I explained that at first glance this is a real challenge BUT there is one feature on this poor quality image that is still recognisable today. The answer is…
Everton’s Goodison Park in 1909 when the club were spending £12,000 on ground improvements, including the erection of new dressing rooms.
I had planned to run this feature during the close season as in previous years, but it’s proving of interest so I’ll keep it going for a little while yet. 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.
Next ground is on Monday.
