Hi Joe: Camillo had found 2 pic's of mine w/ Rory Og O'More band in Celtic Park in 1914 but the photo may have been from 1906? Could Camillo put the photos up again on this page.? I would appreciate i think the photos may have been taken on the CFC goal end. I'm sorry I don't know the correct term. In my photo it shows the white picket fence, the terracing but no pavillon /roof that is seen in some of the photos on the 2 long ends of the field. The photo looks like the bottom 2 pic's. If anyone could help pinpoint the date that the photo was taken it would be great. thanks again for the great website and your assistance, Eileen:) I'm sorry I can't get the photos up myself b/c the computer I put them up on ancestry died and I can't access them. Thanks again!

Gedboy this pic is invaluable. It's the same one as the pic 8 pics above, but your pic hasn't been cropped.
It shows the first "Jungle" which went up in 1905 after the original enclosure at that side (which was seated at the back and terraced at the front) was burned down in 1904.
It has in fact two arches, one at either side of the half way line. There is video footage i've posted on the main forum of this era and i'm sure it can be added to this page.
It was re roofed in 1929 and that side of the ground became known as the Hayshed for obvious reasons (3 pics above yours).
At the same time the Pavillion was burned down so the possible reason for the re roofing was fire damage from the nearby Pavillion.
Remember the Main Stand (2 pics above yours) replaced the Grant Stand in 1929 so it's fair to say that the lay out of the ground changed dramatically that year with a new Main Stand, reroofing of the enclosure opposite and the raising of the Pavillion.

To answer your question judging by the strip we wore i'd say 1905 is accurate for the year the pic was taken.

What newspaper did that pic come from and what's the date? I need to prove exactly where the first CP was for a book I'm writing on sports architecture in Glasgow. Thanks.

Does anyone have info on this pic? I got the image from an Italian postcard collector. I'm guessing soon after 1905.
