This is the oldest aerial shot of Dens Park I have. The picture was taken on 11 Sept 1922. As you can see, the ground is situated on, what was then, the edge of the city limits. Very sparse North of Dens and to the left, where todays tenements in Provost Road & Moncur Crescent are, there was a football pitch. Must have been quite a slope to play futba on!
5 days after this photo was taken, the Dees beat Partick Thistle 1-0 at Dens, in front of 17,000.
