Victoria Park (Ground)

What we know about this image :

Taken at Victoria Park, then called  Victoria Ground, in 1961 when Hartlepool Reserves were playing York Reserves. The photo is taken from the 'Town End' goal looking towards the Rink End. On the right is the old wooden stand which at the time and until the 1980s, was the only seated part of the ground.

The pointed roof in the background was Clock Garage and became incorporated into the ground. It is now the main office block.

Floodlights did not come to Victoria Ground until 1967.
