Can you name the ground featured in the image above? Unlike previous weeks this is a drawing of the ground and so there may well have been a bit of interpretation by the artist. The image is pre-World War One. The answer is…
It’s Liverpool’s Anfield ground, drawn in 1906. This was actually architect Archibald Leitch’s drawing of what intended his ground developments would look like and, according to the newspaper report associated with this drawing, work wuld take another year to complete.
Next ground on Monday.

I had planned to run ‘Historic Name That Ground’ only 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. You can email me at gary@GJFootballArchive.com Thanks.
