Take a trip in time to revisit thirteen football grounds that were once home to football clubs of the English leagues. Photographed by Aerofilms Ltd in the years before and after the Second World War, these images record for posterity a lost football heritage.
When it opened in 1923 Manchester City's Maine Road was the largest club ground in England, with an estimated capacity of 80-90,000.
The massive earth banks that formed the open terraces on three sides of the ground were accessed by steps on the outer slopes or through tunnels - one in each corner with two more in the Kippax Street terrace.
