A picture of Peterborough United's London Road ground during its transformation in the late 1950s. What is still the club's Main Stand had just been built behind the old stand which was then demolished (the point at which the picture was taken) The pitch was then moved over towards the Main Stand leaving space the other side where the Glebe Road terraces were constructed (later replaced by the family stand). Amazingly this was all done when Posh played in the Midland League although attendances in those days regularly topped 10,000.

How ironic!

We visited Budapest last year & the taxi ride into the city took us right past that stadium. My son said to me, "wouldn't it be great if Posh ever had a ground like that!"

I can't believe it. Must admit, it was very impressive when we drove past.
