Description

The book celebrates great players, highlights great games and achievements, lesser known feats, quirks and circumstances and puts everything in the context of the team. Former Scotland Manager Craig Brown ( Volume 2 ) and former Scotland international, Leanne Crichton ( Volume 3 ) provide forewords football fans will love as they start their nostalgic trip down memory lane. With most of the book’s contents coming from between the 1940s and 1960s, a more modern image can take you by surprise – a photo of what looked like the back of a Gdansk shipyard warehouse circa 1952 is actually the North Stand of Hampden photographed in 1981. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. A unique record of Aberdeen supporters' experience reflected in hundreds of previously unseen photos.

Equally astonishing is a photo of Ibrox from the early 1960s where the aerial photo emphasises the whiteness of the uncovered terracing behind the goal. The vast majority of players featured would be Scottish born and, hard though it may be to conceive, most of the grounds may actually have been built with Scottish-produced steel – changes in football only mirror changes in society.This book on Scottish football grounds is just about ok in that it has old photos of grounds but little or no background to each Club or their Support at the time of the photo.

Delve into 200 photos of Scottish football stadiums that have lain unseen, in archives and rarely accessed collections, for decades. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. V. deals ruined British football (along with the Bosman Ruling) and just about destroyed fans' links with their local clubs. Lifted Over The Turnstiles Volumes 2 and 3 are, as former Scotland boss Craig Brown says in his foreword, “A photographic masterpiece.Some subtler changes are displayed, such as the difference in police helmets between Scotland and England in the chapter relating to Berwick Rangers. On first seeing this book, I worried that it might be another homage to the “golden age” of Scottish football, where everything, invariably, was so much better than it is now.
