Saw this on the Courier website and I thought I'd share.

I'm getting 'Page Not Found'.

Some fascinating pictures there. That is some queue going down Pratt Street and the stand being used at Tannadice when it's barely hang built certainly raises an eyebrow.

Great pictures - did you know Kirkcaldy had trams too - my dad told me he used travel on a service that went up to the Boreland. Thanks for the link Wolfman.

The picture of fans up the pylon at East End is actually Celtic fans not Pars ones.
I remember that day and various photos of similar as it was the day Celtic clinched the league title and the ground was swamped by the numbers of Celtic fans that turned up
I'm not 100 per cent sure but I think a fan died that day falling off either the roof of the covered terrace opposite the stand or one of the pylons.
Lots of memories brought back with these pics.
Would the Pratt Street one be for a Scottish Cup game? We got to the semis in 1956.

Also started my Rovers supporting career getting lifted over the turnstiles by my dad at the age of four. He used to stand in the area to the right of the dugouts as they are now I used to sit on the wall with my feet over on the blaze perimeter until the policeman who used to patrol around the pitch came along then had to wheek my legs back over or risk a ticking off and possible ejection from the ground . Very Happy

The red headed Bobby was PC Hamilton and my Sunday School teacher. If alive in his late 80s now - I also used to stand in same area - sometimes but also took advantage of free movement and STOOD anywhere I liked without getting cold feet and butt.

The book was delivered WJ Towers this afternoon, it's a cracker.
It's not just photos though, it may take me longer than I thought to finish.

Former Raith Rovers programme editor and the writer of many books,David Potter, has an "On this Day" book on Raith Rovers scheduled for release this coming Christmas. I read the one he had published on Forfar F.C. and it was excellent so I expect this one to be even better.
One for the Christmas stocking of all Raith fans interested in the clubs history.
