Records show they play on March 11th 1929. No other March date comes as close to the poster as that, so assume it's an error on the records part. 

It's 1955 – the date exactly matches the fixture that year v Thirds (we lost 3-1 in front of 3,500 – how  little things change). The other clue is that there was an election that year, which accounts for political poster* and its complaint about lack of action on the Forth Road Bridge and the Tay Road Bridge, both issues in the 1950s (not so in the 1920s – even the Kincardine Bridge hadn't been built then). Errol Airfield, built in 1939, had been abandoned by the War Ministry after the war. The big political argument in the late 1940s and early 1950s was the continuation of an air service.

Finally, it couldn't have been 1929. Not only were we in the top league then, but the A/B Division setup mentioned in the poster only existed between 1946 and 1956.

* Can't fully explain the 'National Party' bit of the poster, as the National Party merged with SNP in the 1930s, but assume it was local shorthand for the SNP.

On this day in 1962 sitting listening to the game on radio downing a bottle of Robertson's cream soda or some other flavour.

Ah, yes. The Sporting Post. The finest football publication the game has ever known.  Saturday nights were never the same if you couldn't get your hands on one, misprints and all. Sadly missed. RIP.

This is one, more famous for the laughs out of the gifs than the picture. This was glorious.

They're fairly unsung, they're one of the less objectionable clubs and their soup isn't too bad so while Mo fans get rat arsed tonight here is John Sheran with the Division 2 trophy 34 years ago:

Roy Aitken holds up the league trophy won in Celtic's centenary season in 1988 and, is part of the side parading the 1977 Scottish Cup, next to Alfie 'he used to be a *** but he's alright now' Conn.

Couple of pictures again I saw on the brilliant Celti Wiki website, do any other Scottish clubs have an equivalent site with an extensive history of match reports and pictures?   Im a bit of a football nostalgia geek and love all that stuff.

 Not match reports but pictures of every programme issued for a match involving Saints (including lineups, scorers and attendances) at

there's good historic stuff on the londonhearts.com website, including a lot of the Ardath team photo cigarette cards from the mid 1930s.

Bettermeddle is simply sensational for Bairns stats. Lots of souvenirs, programmes etc but it's not really the place for photos.

Dens Park guessing some time in the 1950's as the Tully just listed it as "an aerial image of Dens Park".
