    Back in the days before social media I used to keep scrap books ... I still have 4 of them covering Hibs seasons 76/77 .. 77/78 .. 83/84 and 84/85. There could be more, but I cant find them.

    I cant scan them, but they are packed with stickers, photos and match reports of every game for those seasons. I've just dug them out and a quick skim through showed some interesting stuff like Rangers v Hibs at Ibrox with a crowd of 16,000 in March 84 or a crowd of 15,000 for Celtic v Hibs at Celtic park in March 84 ... it seems the greatest fans in the world weren't so great when their team wasn't doing well

    Also in January 1985 Hibs chairman Kenny Waugh was in the papers denying he was about to sell the club to some guy called 'Tom Farmer'

    Amusingly given current events, in February 1985 Hibs were kicking up a stink about a Hearts fanzine that had published disparaging pen pictures of the Hibs squad and staff .... with Hearts chairman Wallace Mercer apologising for it and making it clear Hearts had nothing to do with it

    I would be happy to pass on the scrapbooks to any Hibs historian who wants them, I'm sure there will be content in them you cant source any more.

    See at the leftmost edge of the old East upper tier, is that a fence or people with an incredible head for heights?

    The next pictures in the sequence are undoubtedly titled “daft mistake” and “Hearts goal”.

    From left to right - George McCluskey, Mark Caughey, Willie Irvine (the lesser), Stuart Beedie and Billy Kirkwood - "the new famous 5"

    Mark Caughey? A Northern Ireland striker who barely played, let alone scored, for us. Think he did OK at Hamilton subsequently.

    IIRC Kenny Waugh flew out to the 1986 World Cup to sign him.

    Yep remember him just couldnt recognize him from the photo. Think he was in the RUC. Was disappointing for Hibs to be honest.

    Billy Bremner in the background and Eddie Gray (or Peter Lorimer?)

    How good was that Hibs team?

    Signed the wrong Caughey according to rumour at the time.

    I've hunted high and low for years for a photo of the stadium from the top of the old two-tiered East, and a photo of the back of it. I was born in 1990 so it's a bit before my time

    Eddie Gray didn't play. Possibly Frank?

    The team was Shaw (Letheran); Reaney, Cherry; Bremner, Ellam, Yorath; Lorimer, Clarke, Jordan, Bates, F. Gray.

    7th November 1973

    Interesting piece from Peter Lorimer:-

    Peter Lorimer claimed that Leeds “wanted out” of the competition and fielded a team of young, mainly Scottish players together with himself and Billy Bremner, who appreciated the trip back home to Scotland. Hibs were quoted at odds of 3-1 and the Leeds players had clubbed together to put £500 on the hosts. He said of the game, “Billy was playing sweeper, that’s how seriously Don was taking it, and he was back-heeling it here, messing about there and joking his way through the game. Unfortunately young John in goal was wanting to make a name for himself. He was not in on the scam and was flinging himself about left and right, making fabulous saves, until he got injured and had to go off. He was replaced by an even younger lad, a Welsh kid called Glan Letheran, and we thought ‘we are in here, Glan will be nervous’. Sure enough he was just as agile as John had been and, come what may, Hibs could not get the ball in the net until, with ten minutes to go, they broke clear down the right, the cross came over and their inside-forward headed home. We gave each other a knowing look, winked and whispered ‘thank God for that’. But the linesman had put his flag up and, despite our protestations that it was all right, the goal was disallowed. At full time, with the scores level, we had done our money. All bets are settled, of course, on ninety minutes. It went to penalties and Don’s view was that, having come so far, we might as well do our best now to win it. Damned right! We needed to win the match to collect the bonuses to cover the bet! And win it we did.”

    Its a bit of a grainy original press photo but here's one from NYD 1950 Gordon Smith scoring the first goal with a header - posting to give an idea of the scale of the East way back then - official crowd was 50,000.

    Apologies if quality not great.

    What a brilliant idea for a thread.

    Some great pics on here. I’m way too young to offer any up, sorry!
