The picture couldnt have been taken at Winton Park. The grandstand wasnt added to above the dressing rooms until 1955/56

Apart from a few, what a scary looking bunch of men..even the priest looks like he'd as soon give you a 'Glesga kiss' as hear your confession! :roll:

They could do with cutting that grass. Not like the billiard tables that they play on today. I like the two old boys sitting in the stand with their bunnets on.
