On Monday I asked ‘Can you name the ground featured in the image above? This image is from before the Second World War. The ground is still in use and has hosted Premier League football.’ The answer is…
It’s Bradford City’s Valley Parade ground. Sadly, this is the stand that in 1985 was destroyed by fire, resulting in the deaths of 56 people. This photo was taken in 1929 during a visit by Prime Minister Baldwin.
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.
