What are some of your oldest memories of Dewsbury?

Were you the bald bloke by the gate waving his hat arround then BSJ ? All things considered, the quality of the film was pretty good I thought. Wonder what health and safety would have made of the ground ?

Cruel 'Grumpy', cruel.

The film was interesting though, particularly the sight of the open stand which, far as I can recall hadn't changed that much when I started following them in the mid to late fifties.

I had a full head of hair then Grumpy, or is your memory finally failing you?

Wasn't the stand on the film the main stand Ossie, before it got a roof?

Can't say for sure Johnny, but seeing as you were probably there maybe I should bow to your seniority Seriously though, reckon I'll stick with my original decision

If you look closely all of the speccies are seated, unless I'm confusing which stand that you mean.

 

We were still without a decent stand off in 1901 I note!

Touché :laugh: Look at all the industrial chimneys in the background - how many of those are left do you reckon ?

The player is Mick Sullivan, and by the look of his shirt it was taken in his days as a St Helens player. I don't recognise the other side, and I don't think that the ground is Crown Flatt, but I reckon that wherever it is they would be chuffed to be half as full on a regular basis.
