I suspect thats wrong, therefore am going to disagree with my father. I think looking at the quality of the picture it is mid to late 1930's, so am going to guess at 1937. I will prob be completely wrong.

Much later than the 1930's I would have said. I'll have a stab at 1977.

if its the scoreboard thats missing and at the PO road end by then it could be 1970 ish cos thats where i used to stand as a nipper....i think adverts came in the 80s...the railings were white by then too........its a dull dreary black an white pic.....69/70 my guess

sometime after the 74 strike when the washer in the pic was installed and before the closure of the pit in 83. I'm guessing 77/78ish.
The mock tudor gable end on the house puts it 60's/70's!
I might be wrong like.

As one who helped put the original sleeer terracing down around 1944/45 the terracing is far in d vance of that so forget pre 50 I reckon. Floodlights? The original ones came from Hunslet and I helped with them. Is that a SHADOW OF A BULL on the ground. I seem to see two horns and a body. I'll settle for 1967. With 73 as a second guess.

Wasn't the Railway End just shale until terracing arrived in the the seventies?

That considered I'll say 1981

Two things. As I said we put sleepers down in the late forties early fifties as terracing. I think you mean concrete terracing. Another thing that stuck me is that there are crowd crash barriers there in the photo. They have gone. That might help.

There definitely was red shale for some time at the railway end LL. I'm sure we painted the railings white in the 70's.
