Proposed new Derby County football stadium 1945
Here’s some images of a new stadium planned for Derby County in the 1940’s. It included a swimming pool, badminton & tennis courts, a cinema & restaurants. The inclusion of leisure facilities it was thought would make,
“the man’s visit to his football ground an occasion for an attractive outing for his wife and family, with perhaps an evening of dancing or swimming or badminton and a handy and attractive restaurant which can relieve the wife of the anti-climax of returning to prepare the evening meal.”
