On 6 September 1913 Arsenal Football Club (then Woolwich Arsenal) played their first match at their new home ground, Highbury, winning 2-1 over Leicester Fosse.

I thought I’d mark the 99th anniversary by heading to the old ground which is only about five minutes from my flat and bagging this shot of the old East Stand, now converted to modern flats.
