Wee numbers, bunnets…….

Different world.

Not to mention collar and tie. I don't think I'm that old (at least in my head), but when I started going to games as a wean in the early 70s it wasn't unusual to see collars and ties in the crowd.

You used to be able to access footage on-line of an Accies V Motherwell game in 1928 (?) from the Scottish Film Archive. It had a lot of crowd shots of mainly men, of course, wearing shirts and ties and bunnets the width of soup plates (obviously the fashion at the time). Last time I tried to view it access seemed restricted.

I remember in the 60s my father and I were at Douglas Park for an Accies  game (v.  Kilmarnock in the cup?) when he pointed out a man resplendent in Crombie coat and bowler hat (!). He was Jimmy Brownlie, Dundee and Scotland goalkeeper, who I think lived locally at the time.

Ooops! Jimmy played for Third Lanark (when he got his caps) and Dundee United afterwards. Just checked in the WRB.

Bert Bell, author of "Still Seeing Red" would be raging.

Oh, here's nursie coming with my nice medicine......

Its highly possible this was taken at the Scottish Cup 3rd Round match from February 1961 which finished up 2-2 with us winning the replay 5-2 at Ibrox. I believe the goalie is Hastie Weir and the No.11 is Bobby Roberts.

Yes, looks likely. Andy Weir, our normal No. 11, was in hospital with meningitis at the time, I believe. Bobby Roberts scored in the replay, when we won 2-5.

Sadly and strangely, no film coverage survives *conspiracy theories start here* :whistling:.
