Historic Name That Ground – Week 29

The latest ground to identify… Do you recognise this ground? Believe it or not a five years before this photo was taken Manchester City’s new ground at Maine Road was described as being designed to emulate this venue.

On Friday I’ll post the answer. So here goes….

Can you name the ground featured in the image above? This is a 1920s photo of this ground. This remains a major venue today.

Post your answer below in the comments field and I’ll post the answer on Friday.

I had planned to run ‘Historic Name That Ground’ only during the close season 2021 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.
