Stamford Bridge today

Here's Dennis at the Bridge for his early birthday treat, the FA Cup quarter-final against Newcastle United.

This is the view from the new West Stand, which has padded seats and gas heaters to keep the punters warm. A far cry from the uncovered concrete terracing which formed this side of the old stadium.


Stamford Bridge Stadium, 31st August 1946

The queue for the turnstiles at Stamford Bridge, for Chelsea's first game of the 1946/7 season, against Bolton Wanderers.

This view is looking out towards the main entrance and the Fulham Road. The crowd, on an evidently wet day, was 61,000. The advertisements are for greyhound racing, something called roller speedway at Harringay Arena and for trains from Walham Green (Fulham Broadway, see below).
