EDITORS COMMENTS
Baseball Ground, Derby: A Nostalgic Aerial Glimpse into Derby County Football Club's Historic Home (1894-1997) This evocative aerial photograph, captured in 1972 by Aerofilms Collection, offers a unique and nostalgic perspective of Baseball Ground in Derby, the former home of Derby County Football Club between 1894 and 1997. The image beautifully encapsulates the essence of urban leisure and recreation during a bygone era. Baseball Ground, named after its original use as a baseball ground, was the site of Derby County's rich footballing history. The ground, located in the heart of the city, was a hub of community spirit and passion, with its terraces often filled to capacity for important matches. The photograph reveals a sprawling complex, with the football pitch taking centre stage. The terraces, now long gone, are visible on three sides, their steep slopes a testament to the fervent support of the Derby County fans. The Main Stand, a grand structure with a distinctive roof, stands proudly at the other end of the ground. The surrounding area, dotted with houses and industrial buildings, underscores the ground's urban setting. This aerial view serves as a poignant reminder of the past, a time when Baseball Ground was the heart of Derby County Football Club and the focal point of the local community. Today, the site is home to the iPro Stadium, a modern football ground that carries on the legacy of its historic predecessor. Yet, this photograph invites us to pause and reflect on the rich history and memories that Baseball Ground once held.
