How time changes at Upton Park
« on: 29 August, 2008, 03:53:43 PM »
I unearthed the programme for West Ham's first game back in the old First Division (25th August 1958 v Wolves). 

The prices of tickets went from 2 bob to three half crowns for a seat in the stand.

The Supporters' Club had a Prize Draw.  The top prize was a suite of furniture valued at fifty one shillings.  You couldn't get a second hand suite for that in a Charity Shop these days.
