    I think we're all experiencing senior moments over this!

    It certainly wasn't built then.

    The terracing seemed to be approximately reduced by half before the South Stand was built.

    Another senior moment showing the back of the West Stand when quoting when the South Stand was opened.

    It was very foggy that afternoon v Everton and I could just about see over the perimeter fence from my place behind the North stand goal. That is not a 'senior moment' ( Plum) that's a ****ing good memory.

    I was at the Everton game, and the South stand was not built then as far as I remember. This game stands out for me as it was the first and last time my father attended a game, I persuaded him to come along, he lasted 20 minutes in the North stand and had to leave as he felt claustrophobic and didn't like the crowds. I stayed for the match and had to walk home as I didn't have money for the bus.

    P.S. I still have the program at home.

    Over to my husband......

    www.hullcity-mad.co.uk/feat/edy3/boothferry_park_186699/index.shtml

    "Have recalled this article from my days at Hull City-Mad written by Andy Beill who says the South Stand was completed during the closed season of 1965 so confirms it was up and running for 65/66 fixtures.

    Also I was at the first match played under the old floodlights which was played in January 1953 against Dundee United as mentioned in the article by Andy."

    I was also at this match and it was still the old bunkers hill.

    I think that's right. South Stand was reconstructed during 1965 and completed in the 1965 close season.

    This amazing photograph should have pride of place in a prominent position somewhere inside the KC/KComm.

    I've thought for a while that there is surely enough interest and sufficient paraphernalia to have a Hull City museum within the KCOM. I've been lucky enough to see much of the match-worn kits stuff this year, and it's mesmerising. When you go to things like the museum at Lord's, it's fascinating. You lose hours. I'd love us to do something like this. We may have to wait until we have owners who are connected with our history and heritage, however.

    The Senior Tigers do a lot of good work in this area.

    Some of the Senior Tigers saved a lot of stuff that Duffen wanted to chuck in the skip.

    Indeed they did. In fact they rescued said stuff from an actual skip, I'm told. Not sure it was in Duffen's time though.

    Rob Smith (former long-serving marketing manager) says that there was a load of priceless (to City) memorabilia found in a skip and duly taken out under Lloyd's regime. Could have happened under Duffen, too, obviously, but whatever faults he had, I thought Duffen was very respectful of our heritage as a rule.

    Fair play to the Senior Tigers for stuff like this though. There are lots of pockets of people doing great things to preserve City's history and keep it alive for coming generations (and I include AlRawdah in that). Would be nice if we had a club that better embraced these things.
