Monday, July 24 – 1922
The construction of Manchester City’s new ground at Maine-road, Moss Side, in that city, will be commenced during this week, and, as we have previously announced, will be completed for the opening of the season 1923-24.
Then Manchester City are hoping to have the finest equipped ground of any club in the country. The site, which has been purchased outright, is admirably situated as regards tram routes, covers 16 ¼ acres, and Mr. Charles Swain, of Manchester, the architect for the undertaking, has prepared plans in which he has embraced the salient features and improvements which have suggested themselves to him from a tour of the principal grounds in England and Scotland.
