I said on Monday that this was a tough one but did you work out where the latest ‘Historic Name That Ground’ was? I explained that the image is from the early 1900s and this ground is not the current ground – in fact the club who played here have had 3 official grounds since this one! The answer is:
Queen’s Park Rangers’ ground. This was the Royal Agricultural Society’s Park Royal site and Rangers played here from 1904 (when this photo was taken) to 1907. After that they played at another Park Royal site (1907-1917) before moving to Loftus Road (1917-1931; 1933-1962 & since 1963) & White City (1931-33 & 1962-63).

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.
