    In addition to the Best Posts in Thread... should there now be a Best Threads on Forum option?
    As this I think, would be pretty much right at the top of the list...
    ...and with all the old photos of WHL and the surrounding areas, this (and next) season, it feels especially poignant!

    Glory Glory Glorious Stuff!!

    Has to still be the same building, certainly looks like a 1904 (and before) building.

    Looks 1904 but isn't lol. This is the building as a health centre. Sorry to say the social club building must be gone. I'm confused.

    Let's hope the club do a good job on this Museum in the new stadium. All this illustriuos history on our door step and so many unanswered questions.
    I'm certainly going to sign up to one of the history walks that Julie Welch does occasionally from the Antwerp Arms. I fear that it might be a tad old for me, lots of themes flasks and sensible walking boots and kagool's but if you wanna hold my hand and look after me Joe, I'm up for it.

    So the building work above the the bookies photo is comparatively new?

    I think in that pic Conn looks like trippier after being shipwrecked

    The Heath Centre photo must be quite old then.

    It hasn't been a boozer for years, early 00s ,i reckon?!
    It weren't a bad pub in its dayIn its last incarnation,it had a cans only bar for match days at the back.Which isnt everyones cuppa, but you got served quick if all you wanted was a drink.

    I used that as well.
    Sad the way the old pubs have gone.Silly thing is we are going to need more after the new place is built.
    It's bad enough getting a drink now,what its going to be like with 1000s more looking for a watering hole.

    I have a cheesy photo of me and him holding out hands as in this pick. I wonder how many times he has been asked to do that, poor bastard. Still he didn't bat an eyelid and did it as if it was the first time ever asked.
    I bet he is hung like a donkey.

    Might have looked a bit better if the photographer hadn't dropped a handful of microdots before the game
