The White House Ground (2)

At the other end of the time-scale, these photos show The White House in the later years of City's tenancy. All four pictures look towards St Matthew's Church in the North-West corner of the ground.

White House

This photograph, of the North Stand, was used for some time on the front of the programmes in the 1979-80 season.

This regularly seen image (courtesy of the Oxford Mail) shows a snowy White House on December 8th 1967 as volunteers try to get the ground playable for the FA Cup tie against Luton Town the following day.
The match was postponed and, for various reasons, switched to Kenilworth Road and played the following Thursday. John Woodley scored for City as they lost an exciting game 1-2.

St. Matthew's Church and the North Stand again feature prominently in this photo (courtesy of Chris Johnson) taken from the goal at the East End.

Another image from the 'usual' angle (again courtesy of the Oxford Mail) shows a forlorn White House after City's eviction at the end of the 1987/88 season.

WH Map

The aerial photo shows the site of the White House today.
St. Matthew's Church is ringed and the area is surrounded by White House Road to the South, Marlborough Road to the West, Western Road to the North and Abingdon Road on the East.
