034 – Opening of the West Stand

In 1932 the first part of Chapman’s plan to make Highbury the most opulent ground in football was well underway with the completion of the West Stand. Today’s scans are from the brochure handed out to mark the occasion. Particularly interesting is the picture on the back page showing the new stand with the original Archibald Leitch East Stand opposite.

(just for the record this is a scan of a reproduction of the brochure as the original I have is heavily creased)
