Lifted Over The Turnstiles
Scotland's Football Grounds In The Black & White Era Foreword by Chick Young. This is the best memories book a football fan could hope for. And it is the best book about old Scottish football grounds ever published. Admittedly, it is also the only one. There are almost 200 photos of 42 football stadiums here that have lain unseen, in archives and rarely accessed collections, for decades. No other public buildings hold such emotional ties. These are the places where your grandfather, father, uncles, brothers and friends exulted and cursed. This is where you remember them at ther best, at their happiest. Every football fan reveres their home ground, but also travelled. Perhaps it was the ‘away days’ that were the best of all. And all those scenes - of triumph and disaster, joy and despair - are here.
