Iain S. P. Reid | Manchester United & City Fans 1970s.

British Culture Archive | January, 2018

Here at British Culture Archive we recently discovered an amazing set of photos on Facebook by the late photographer Iain S. P. Reid.

The photos date from around 1977 and feature mainly young Manchester United and City fans attending home matches at Old Trafford and Maine Road.

When we recently re-shared some of the images on our Facebook page and they have stirred up some nostalgic memories about the football culture of previous decades, the fashion, the atmosphere and what is was like to be a match going fan long before Sky TV and big money takeovers.

The majority of Iain’s images have not been seen by many, hopefully they can now be appreciated by a wider audience.

Here are a handful of Iain’s images below.
