Ahh, memories. The John Ireland stand with red seats!. I used to sell the Wolves Golden Goal tickets under that stand in 1973.

Smashing memories Stokie, cheers.

I used to stand right next to the tunnel in the Waterloo Rd stand.

Still love that roof that was on the Molineux St stand.

Quality...7 1/2p to get in the South Bank.

In the picture of Waterloo Road the one with the pushchair, you can see the old ticket office, where the car is parked, and above you can see one of "our" twin towers, either side of the steps.

Great pictures.

I love looking at pictures like that, even though obviously I'm not old enough to remember them.

A few questions for those of you that can remember, if you don't mind humouring me?:

- From what angle/side of the ground is the very first picture of this thread taken?

- Without wishing to sound morbid, how did something like Hillsbrough not happen sooner than it did? With all those people packed into such a confined space, did casualties ever occur, and was it ever a worry?

- How unique is the Molineux in the respect of having the current version of the stadium on the same site as all that history? Surely it's in the minority now, with the influx of new stadiums built in the last few decades?

The houses would be where the Steve Bull stand is now, Molineux Street.
The last game at that ground as it looked then was in May 1979.

Hillsbrough was waiting to happen for years.

And Carly, there was talk of the ground moving to near the M54, and Cannock(Merrie England, the Oribital), but thankfully it stayed where it belonged.

Does anyone remember the shop in Molineux street called Preece's. You could buy ex army and RAF gear in there in the early seventies. RAF shoes were as big as Doc Martens then. I think Karman Ghia started in that street also.

Absolutely fantastic pic stokie.

Almost brings a tear to my eye!

I remember sitting on the white wall surrounding the pitch, in the waterloo road stand in the 70's.

And the queues to get in the south bank. There was a car park just above that, to the right as you queued.
You went up there to have a fight!!

Happy days :wink:

Brilliant Stokie,I can remember as a kid being squashed in like a sardine just entering the Southbank.
Look at the admission price 1/6 ( about 9p) to see some of the best players in the country.Lots of the same haircuts lol

Carly88,it might be worth telling you the pitch is round a different way since the refurbishment
.I've been a member of another site for a few years and a lad did a very good aerial map that showed how it use to be
but I can't seem to find it now.Maybe someone else has it.It's amazing there was never a 'Bradford'
due to loads of old grounds like ours made of basically wooden stands and virtually everyone smoking and chucking fag-ends and paper onto the ground.
In saying that,there was very little crowd trouble, no segregation and very little colours.People were more concerned about what went on the pitch rather than off it.
I think we may now have the record for being at the same ground (since 1889) the longest.

Thank you.

The pitch wasn't turned round the other way. It was just moved over, eventually, so that it is now further East (Towards Steve Bull stand) than it used to be. When the Steve Bull (John Ireland as it was then) stand was built it was a long way from the edge of the pitch. They moved the pitch over when they were ready to do the other 3 stands.

As has been stated, the Steve Bull (John Ireland) stand was built on what used to be Molineux street.

Great photos evoking some special times. I remember when it was 1/3 for juniors. With bus fares and a programme it used to cost me and left back 2/6 (12.5p) per game. We used to stand behind the goal on the south bank and get there at 1.30p.m for a 3p.m kick off - special memories thanks Stokie.

Left Back,read my post I didn't say the 'other way' I said a 'different way'.
Why are you trying to make something out of nothing?

To be fair to Lb, it's the 'round' which causes any confusion if that's the case. I read it exactly the same as Lb in all honesty.

Nobody is trying to make 'something out of nothing' ... chill out mate.

Another one with thousands of posts that looks down and patronizes a fellow Wolves fan.

Proves my point.

Thank you Strats. There was no intention to start anything. The interpretation I put on it was exactly as you said. I'm finding it quite difficult to see what else Underhill meant by that phrase.

I think Underhill that you need to look carefully at that chip you are carrying. It would make you feel much better if you removed it. (patronizing or what eh?)
