The picture at the end of the road


To celibrate their being in existence for 125 years the fans had a mural painted on the end of the last house, or  could be the first, in Goodison Road, home of Everton Football Club. Founded in 1878 it has always been known as the People's Club.

Everton, the People's Club, formed in 1878,
Saint Domingo's finest,
They thought it would be great to be the first
to represent the new sport in the city,
Dean – Ball – Inchy, Sheedy – Arteta,
Football so pretty.

Yeh really good capture, nice use of DOF, top image.
Les Auld: Thanks David, I was helped by the fact that the wall did not move much when I took the picture. Bit of PP and I was quite happy with it.
Great juxtaposition between the two elements Les. (Sorry about the big word)!
Les Auld: Don't mind the big words Brian, I just can't spell them. Thanks for the comment.

An English colleague of mine in BT Ireland (Liverpuddlian) is a HUGE Everton fan...I must show her this, it's great.
Les Auld: There is another one as well coming up. thanks for the comment Dave.
This would not have looked as good had it been a nice day! I'm not quite sure why, but somehow the grey sky symbolises how the stadium was the escape for the working man from the drudgery of life. (good grief, that's a bit deep for me!)
Les Auld: I know what you mean Bill, it was a very dull day but processing brought out some depth to the sky, interesting idea on symbology though.

Absolutely true, I think most Everton supporters are locals, rather than being drawn from all round the country. The clubs also supports the locals, which is nice.
Les Auld: Always been a local club Ellie albeit quite a successful one, thanks for the comment
Hey Les - as an Everton fan this makes me very happy!
Les Auld: If I can make you happy Bernie, thanks for the comment.
