Day 6 of my posts counting down to the centenary of Maine Road’s opening game asked you to name the year this aerial photo was taken. I gave a few clues which may help date this:
- None of the temporary stands have yet been constructed in the corners
- The MCFC lettering appears at the bottom section of the North Stand
- The Souvenir Shop still appears to be operational and doesn’t look like it’s been turned into offices yet
- Both the Platt Lane Stand and the Kippax have been replaced BUT what about the end panelling of the Kippax? Is that complete?
The answer is 1995.
If you’d like to read more on the history of Maine Road, take a look at Farewell To Maine Road, which can be downloaded from this page:
