EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial photograph, EAR017767, showcases The Baseball Ground, a historic football stadium located in Derby, England. Home to Derby County Football Club from 1895 until 2003, this iconic venue played a significant role in the city's sports and leisure scene for over a century. The image, captured by Aeropictorial in September 1952, offers a unique bird's-eye view of the stadium in its prime. The meticulously manicured pitch takes center stage, surrounded by the grandstands and terraces that housed thousands of passionate fans. The Main Stand, a prominent feature, boasts an impressive size and architectural design, reflecting the growing popularity of football during this era. The Baseball Ground was not just a place for competitive football matches but also hosted various other events, including FA Cup ties, charity shields, and even music concerts. The image reveals the adjacent Pride Park, which served as a recreational area for the community, adding to the overall charm of the scene. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are transported back in time, reminiscing about the rich history and memories created at The Baseball Ground. Today, the site has been redeveloped, and the stadium no longer exists. However, the legacy of this lost football ground lives on, inspiring a sense of nostalgia and appreciation for the role it played in the history of football and Derby's community.
