Could anyone help with the identification of the following postcards?

1. Clearly a match in progress in progress with 4/5 storey houses visible to the rear. The reverse of the postcard is printed in English. Circa 1910? Apologies for picture quality.

2. Team group, in front of grandstand, with sign players & officials only. my thoughts were Fulham?

Over to the experts,

Re: photo 1, I'm not sure if that's Leazes Terrace running up behind the far side of St James' Park in Newcastle, but that was my first thought, especially with one team playing in vertical stripes. I'm not sure the standing area on that side was ever that low though...

photo 1 could be Queens Park, Glasgow. Looks like the houses backing on to Hampden Park?

Thanks for the suggestion, but my review of the historical kits website, which is excellent, suggest that Huddersfield have always had there famous blue and white stripes?

Any other suggestions out there?


Cheers, Ian
