Wow that's brilliant. Can I get a print of this anywhere ? I've just been deported to Bexleyheath, Kent and my Missus has already named a downstairs bedroom as The Fulham Room as I have various prints and a signed framed Championship shirt signed by Kit Symons on the walls.. If I could get this framed it would really set it off.. (BTW the room is being used as a study/office and I am not Gok Wan in disguise).. Than

...this has been my facebook header for ages, if you look it is before they had put the verandah balcony on the front of the Cottage so the photo must be from 1906-1910 - and not 1923...

Also noticed there is no 'D' outside the penalty area, which I believe was already in place by 1923 so I expect LBNo11 to be closer to the date..

...OK I have done some more research, this photograph was taken by the club's appointed photographers 'Moyse' of Putney High Street and was published in "The Book Of Football" published in 1906 by The Amalgamated Press (See photo below).

Now, the game is in the winter as the London Plane trees are not in leaf, but heavy coats are not evident on the fans and January 1906 was very mild in London * so looking at the size of crowd, and with the away teams slightly darker top with white shorts and much darker socks ** I make this the game played on January 27th 1906 against Luton Town in the Southern League division one game in front of an estimated 14,000 crowd. We won the match 3-0 with goals from Bill Morrison (1st half), and Alex Fraser and William Wood in the second half.

Also note the white picket fencing in front of the Stevenage Road stand, that was removed by the start of the 1910 season. Finally there is a picture of the 1907-08 team in front of the Cottage pavilion which now has the verandah/balcony...

Nice one, Ed. 
It looks odd how the river looks as though its running along the back of the Hammy end but its not behind the Thamesbank. Who moved the Thames?

Hi Ed
I remember when there were no stands at the riverside and Bishops Park. I stood at the Hammersmith End as a twelve year old in 1949. When was that stand built?
Love the tree in the corner.

I thought the same thing.  Also the tree between Riverside/Hammy.  I know there is one between Putney/Riverside (only league club with a tree inside the grounds) so when was the tree in the corner of Riverside/hammy removed?

A couple of years ago, to make way for the Michael Jackson statue  :dead horse:

It's quite remarkable how much change there has been, not just to the ground but the surroundings too.

This is the picture taken in September 1905 from our first game at the redeveloped Craven Cottage v Pompey (0-0).

I have it on my wall at home.

...I thought it should have been that one Chesh, but in September the trees would have been in leaf still...
