The Kop’s Last Stand 10 years ago today

<< < (2/2)

Never realised it came to Liverpool via Garston.
I wonder who the Horse and cart belonged too.
My family were delivering coal in those days.
It must have gone past my grand-dads house, pity the bloody horses if they went up St Mary's it's steeper than the valley.

Old Koppite:
To commemorate the new Kop, the topmast of Brunel’s giant Great Eastern six-masted iron steamer ship, one of the first ever, was erected on the outside corner of the Kop at the junction of Walton Breck Road with Kemlyn Road after the new Spion Kop was built in 1906. The ship had been broken up at Rock Ferry, Birkenhead, in 1890 and the club officials in search of a flagpole managed to buy it for 20 guineas, a reasonable price. The mast was floated across the river Mersey to Garston and transported to Anfield and hauled up Everton Valley on two wagons, hauled by a team of three horses. It still stands in the same spot at the corner of the Kop and known as ‘Flagpole corner’, and will have been there 100 years in 2006.

It's still there, just about?
