    Is that Iggy at one of the windows there
    Cheek.
    My window overlooked St Clair St and the Eastern Cemetry which was how I could see the top corner (and nowt else).
    Part of me wishes I could've seen it in 1948.....!

    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.

    Brilliant photo, not seen that before, I'm sure all the tech-heads on here will be able to clean that up for you

    I'll get it out the frame later and see if I can get a better image. Technology, who'd have it?!

    Sounds like a crock as there no way on this earth they werent trying.
    The team was still full of established internationals and the youngsters like Jordan and Frank Gray were hardly plucked from obscurity. The only unknowns were the sub goalie and Ellam. Lorimer is bull****ting. Remember that night well. Hibs were awesome, just couldnae score.

    Yeah, really enjoying the old pics of Easter Road.
    Most of us auld yins will have pics at home which could be of interest to fellow Hibees, but (like me) lack the cyber skills, to show them off.

    Maybe Cropley WG can confirm source?
    Presumably Lorimer's autobiography?

    Incidentally great thread.

    Keep these historic snaps coming folks.
    I'm enjoying explaining them all to my 9 year old mental hibby son.
    I once spoke with Allan Clarke (Paul Reaney was also there) about this game, when in the hospitality at Elland Road some years back. And whilst it wasn't as one sided as Lorimer paints it. They also mentioned it was a younger/less experienced side Revie put out. And he did say Revie's eye was on the league championship not Europe (or at least the UEFA Cup). The keepers were 3rd/4th choice I think with Harvey and Stewart just signed from Ayr Utd being 1st and 2nd that season.

    There seems to be some truth in this as the team he fielded either side of this game for the league had Harvey, Madeley, Jones, Hunter & McQueen in all of which played 30+ league games that year. And 3 of these played in the first leg.

    Think you're right, I was at that game behind goals at the now FF stand, what a player Neilly Martin was for us, brilliant especially in the air.

    If I calculate correctly 5/3d equates to 26pence.

    Iím not old enough to remember but the site I seen the photo on said 26p too.

    Shame these stations have all gone, they wouldnít have needed to ruin Edinburgh and bankrupt it with the trams and the trains actually would have taken us somewhere useful.
