The latest ground to identify… Do you recognise this ground? On Friday I’ll post the answer. Here are a few clues…
Can you name the ground featured in the image above? This is a 1920s photo of this ground which, at the time was fairly new. The ground remains a prominent venue today and has staged Premier League games. The curved road still exists, as does much of the housing. In fact even the stand that’s clear on this photo existed last time I went to this ground, though plans were made in recent years to replace it (work should have started and be progressing well but I’ve not checked).
Post your answer below in the comments field and I’ll give 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.
