A Closer Look At The Famous Grassy Bank
Note that when this photo was taken, a fence was in place at the rear of the terrace to prevent fans standing on the grass bank behind. This at one time didn't exist, so fans stood on the grass too. This led to some comical scenes especially if there had been heavy rain.

Both pictures were taken by Han at the last game to be played at Springfield Park, against Manchester City.
