Tall Diamonds
Tall Diamonds
When in place at Elland Road these were the tallest floodlights in Europe. Constructed in 1974 at a whopping 260 feet tall, initially three floodlights were erected. Two at either side of the Kop and the other in the South West corner. The other was put up in the South East corner adjacent to the old Lowfields four years later. The diamond shaped lights could have been seen for miles around and each light contained 55 lamps.

West Stand Ruins
West Stand Ruins
The charred skeletal remains of the old West Stand at Elland Road. On 18 September 1956, a huge fire swept through the West Stand at Elland Road, with such a ferocity that it scorched large sections of the Elland Road turf. The fire had started in the early hours and consumed the entire structure, taking with it the offices, kits, the club records, physio equipment, the dressing rooms, directors' rooms and press box. Just a black skeletal silhouette of twisted metal remained. Local chippy shop owner Arnold Price first rasied the alarm but it was too late, nothing could be saved. The roofing had already collapsed into the seats before the fire brigade arrived. The damage was estimated at 100,000 and the clubs insurance at the time wasn't enough to cover costs. After the rubble was cleared it was evident the stand was not salvageable. It was decided after a meeting that the directors, would launch an appeal to build a new stand, with added assistance from the Leeds City Council.

Surveying The Aftermath
Surveying The Aftermath
The Leeds manager Raich Carter surveys the damage to the West Stand after the fire in 1956. The damage caused by the 56 fire was estimated at 100,000 and the clubs insurance at the time wasn't enough to cover costs. It was decided after a meeting that the directors, would launch an appeal to build a new stand, with added assistance from the Leeds City Council. Ultimately 60,000 was raised by the appeal and at the start of season 1957-58 a new West Stand, at a cost of 180,000, was ready for the new season.
