Postby cockneyhammer » Sat Sep 03, 2016 12:20 pm

do not know how old you guy's are but i love going back in time and looking at how things was back in the day some really bygone day's some fantastic old black and white photos being only 22 it is really great to look back in time if you have any old b/w photos please feel free to share them on here i did star a similar thread but it has gone off the board so i will try and keep this one updated thanks steve

This picture was only taken 53 years ago; here you can see a section of the crowd at Wembley for the 1960 FA Cup final between Wolves and Blackburn. Many of the gentlemen look as if they are dressed for cricket at Lord's with their jackets, shirts and ties.
Image
Do you get the feeling this picture was taken in the days before tribalism in the game? This delightful snap shows Sheffield United supporters in London before the 1936 FA Cup final against Arsenal - more than 93,000 watched at Wembley as the Gunners won 1-0.
not a lot has change as sheffield united fans still dress like this in 2016
Image
It has been said by many that one of the major changes in football over the past 20 years is the number of women attending matches - I have seen many old pictures, including this one of Colchester fans watching their team play Norwich in the 1950s, that shows the game has been popular with female fans for a lot longer
Image Fulham fans at London's old Addison Road station in 1957 to catch a special supporters club train to Ipswich for an FA Cup third round tie - they would have come home happy as well, with the London club winning 3-2 at Portman Road.
Image
Craven Cottage it always seems to hark back to a different era - if you've been there recently, you'll notice that some things haven't changed since this 1958 picture of schoolboys celebrating a Fulham goal against Bristol Rovers in the sixth round of the FA Cup. The London side won the match 3-1, but were beaten by Manchester United in the semi-finals.
Image
This is the only fan that gets their own billing here - I just thought this Preston supporter, seen here in London's Trafalgar Square before North End's FA Cup final clash with Huddersfield in 1938, deserved it. I suspect he had a pretty good time after the game too, as Preston were 1-0 winners at Wembley.
Image
There's a real resonance about this picture, which shows servicemen at Wembley for a wartime match between England and Scotland in 1943
Image
Millwall fans climb onto the floodlight posts and scoreboard to watch a match against Newcastle at The Den in 1957
more then likely trying to cut the fuckers down for scrap :D
Image
How much do you still wish there were special football trains today? Here Arsenal fans are at London's King's Cross station to catch the train to Huddersfield for the FA Cup semi final against Grimsby in 1936
Image
Look how packed the roof of this block of flats is - these fans are watching West Ham play Hereford in an FA Cup fourth round replay at Upton Park in 1972
if you look hard enough bottom left you can see gonzo geo and serbian hammer
Image
A glorious picture here of a young fan being passed over the heads of the crowd to a better viewing position at the front of the terrace, during a match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in 1947
Image Manchester United players are in the city after the club's famous 1968 European Cup win
Image
A smashing aerial shot here of the old Clock End at Highbury in 1956, with fans packed in to watch Arsenal play a First Division match against Cardiff

The West Ham Hereford replay was during a period of enforced power cuts (the three day week was a couple of years later), it was full to capacity and hence all the people on top of the flats. Unfortunately the power was on in my area that day so I couldn't get the time off to go.

Hereford United’s First Visit – Monday February 14, 1972
72_02_14 WHU v. Hereford United FAC4R
The main match impacted was West Ham’s home FA Cup 4th round replay against non-league Hereford United.

The original tie was played on Wednesday February 9, 1972 at Edgar Street and ended in a scoreless draw.

The replay was set for the following Monday February 14 but due to the Government emergency power regulations the kick-off was bought forward from the evening to the afternoon. The replay started at the unusual time of 2.15 p.m. Despite an afternoon start on a week day the game was a sell-out with the gates closed well before the kick-off. With 42,271inside the ground ... just 51 short of an all-time Boleyn Ground record, with record-breaking ground recepits of £16,980. An estimated 5,000 late comers were also locked out and many of whom ended up watching the game from the roof of the flats behind the North Bank. One of the memorable images from this cup tie is of fans precariously perched on the roof top.
