The North Bank originally was an earthen mound. Terraced concrete steps were laid in the 1920's and a roof was added in 1961. The north-east corner was rebuilt and opened in 1974 with room for 11,070 standing spectators. Under new guidelines this was reduced to 8,580.

Fabulous CH This defo needs a thread. :crest: Picture 2, was what the ground looked like, when I first started going with my Dad, when we in the old Second Division two seasons before we finally ended our long years in the wilderness following our relegation from the original First Division, back in the mid 30's

Great thread Steve.

I have a print of a painting of the Boleyn (with Ludo in goal at the far end) in my office.

It's how the ground was when I first went and how I still think of it.

You used to be able to buy those little models of the ground. I never bought one, but wished I had now. Some on here will know precisely what I mean. If anybody has one, my advice is to guard it with your life, or indeed any memorabilia of our ground, as these could fetch quite a premium in years to come. If anybody knows where you can still buy those little models of the ground, I will be very interested to know
