The “Spion Kop” at the Valley Parade football ground

August 6, 1908
About fifty men are now engaged upon the construction of a huge bank at the Manningham end of the Valley Parade Football Ground, which will largely resemble the famous “Spion kop” on the Liverpool Club’s ground. It will be 37ft. in height, and on the face of the slope there will be 86 steps of terracing.
