    I have a brilliant one that I got from either here or the Bounce....shows Alan shooting 'doon the slope' in 1972 Vs Leeds.

    Very apt as it shows the old east banking behind which looks like it stretches into the sky packed to the gunnels with Hibees!

    Its on my works PC tho'....will put it on tomorrow unless someone else has the same one in the meantime????

    Great photo.

    ....and for those that are feeling all morose about the demise of the tip that is the East Stand, this shows the East that I miss.

    I was one of those thousands on the East terrace that night.

    Probably as good a view of the game as many of them had judging by the crowd in that picture.

    Last season!

    That photo encapsulates my main memory from that night. Billy Bremner immediately in front of his goalie; snarling, fists clenched and organising everything. He was brilliant the little s**t !!!

    I was there aswell, on the top tier front row just in line with the 18 yard box where Alan Gordon [RIP] had his goal wrongly chopped of for offside after Arthur Duncan had cut the ball back on to his napper which Alan as he always did rose with aplomb and tucked it away.

    We got there at 6 as soon as the gates opened so we could get next to the front barrier on the top tier

    I have distinct memory of Allan Clarke kicking out at Alan off the ball and Alan treating him with disdain.

    Me too. That's the East that I remember - not the East as is today.

    Edit: Thanks for the photos, guys.

    Was there two tiers? I'd always imagined it as one huge big bank of terracing.

    What was the East built on, was there anything underneath it, was it sturdy? What was up the very back of it, a wall to stop you falling to the ground? So many questions. I'd love to have experienced the old terracing. Pity I was born about ten years too late

    It was basically just a giant hill. The back was a grassy slope.

    At half time it was the toilet with the best view in the country and at full time it was the quickest way down if you chose to avoid the steps!

    PS: I was also on the East at that Leeds match!

    I was in the Cowshed, East Terracing and Dunbar End that night.

    Brings back memories of some great European nights that Easter Road saw and we were desperately unlucky to go out to Leeds that night.

    Would be fantastic if those great nights returned soon.

    Sorry to crap on everyone's chips, but I wasn't on the Terracing that night. I was in the Cowshed.

    I had a brilliant view of Bremner playing keepie-uppie on his own line. Quite the most superb exhibition of the sweeper role I've ever seen in the flesh.

    Indeed. I'd have happily killed him that night.

    That match was the year before I was born. To my eyes, that East terrace looks absolutely insane!

    However, the current Stand is still basically built on the very lower slope of that hill, so the final link with the old stadium is going.

    It does make me think that the new single tier stand is the most appropriate design, though - a nod to the past. Onwards and upwards.
