"Remembering Belle Vue" in the Belle Vue Bar
« on July 17, 2015, 03:52:14 PM by VSC »

With Belle Vue now all but gone the VSC approached the club with the idea of filling a couple of walls in the Belle Vue bar with a huge print of Belle Vue; something to look at and make us all smile before a match whilst having a pint; attached below is a picture the two walls we are looking to cover.

We also wanted to offer the chance to all Rovers fans (and local companies) to have their names permanently printed on to the wallpaper as a donor to the project, with your name merged into the print for all to see.

For just 20 (50 for businesses) you can become a donor to this exciting project, and have your name printed on this unique wallpaper!

We are working with Steve Uttley Photography to source the best two photographs for this project; if you have a photograph you think would look great in large print on the wall, feel free to email it to website@drfc-vsc.co.uk


To donate just click the link above and remember to leave the name you would like printing on the wall.
You don't need a PayPal account to donate; just click the continue link under "Don't have a PayPal account?" to enter your card details.

Not complaining or anything but maybe a photo of the ground before the town end and popside were condemned  would be better. I hope that doesn't come across as being  negative it's just a suggestion .

There was a great aerial photo of BV on the inside back cover of the programme for the last game at BV v Forest - all stands intact, planes on the airfield.

Is there any reason why it couldn't be on more than 1 wall? It is the belle vue bar after all. I'm not suggesting it dominates the room, just has more presence

It's really got to be pre-1985 showing the Cowshed and the old Pop Side and Rosso. So if anyone is aware of a good quality aerial shot, preferably in colour, that would be ideal.

Muttley- was the one in the Forest programme in colour? That sounds ideal.

All great ideas - keep em coming! We'll speak to Steve about the Aerial photos and see what we can find. In the meantime please keep your donations coming in! 
And for anyone who doesn't want their real name on the wall, you can also submit your twitter name, or even forum username if you want! :scarf:

The old stand opposite the main stand, from Bob Lilliman;
Vince Taylor on Twitter: "The Popular Side at Doncaster Rovers' former Belle Vue ground in 1979. Pic Bob Lilliman. http://t.co/wKCUCoYB2y"

Click on the photo to make it big. Next one in the sequence is the old  "Barker and Wigfall" wooden stand at the Town end.

It's really got to be pre-1985 showing the Cowshed and the old Pop Side and Rosso. So if anyone is aware of a good quality aerial shot, preferably in colour, that would be ideal.

Muttley- was the one in the Forest programme in colour? That sounds ideal.

It was sepia (or faded black & white)

One thing to bear in mind is that you will need a scan of an original photo or negative, not a digital image copied off a website, otherwise it will not enlarge well.

I asked Deebee about a copy of the aerial shot for myself as he reckoned he had access to it, but he never got back to me.

I was involved with the production of that programme but I don't remember where we got that specific photo from. It may have been Steve who found it.

I wonder if Stuart Roy Clark would allow us to use A Crack at Belle Vue?

Thinking about this, Mick could fill a wall on his own with all of his aliases.

Just a quick message for anyone donating via PayPal - if you click "send money" within your own account and send to treasurer@drfc-vsc.co.uk, rather than using the donate button above, we can collect the full 20 and won't be charged an 88p handling fee  :aok:

Is this the one?

If so, I would be interested in buying a print if possible.

What about painting a few turnstiles, the main stand, popular stand, floodlights etc around the photographs.

Just an FYI - we're aiming to get the wallpaper printed and hung before the Bury game, so we'll have to stop accepting donations at some point next week (tbc)
