Twickenham stadium was opened on Saturday on the 9th of October 1909. Less than 2,000 spectators turned out to see the New Ground’s tenants, Harlequins, beat Richmond 14-10. The first Varsity match was played in December 1921, by which time the popularity of Twickenham had soared. A North Stand was built in 1925 by the legendary football stadium architect, Archibald Leitch. By 1931, the famous ‘Twickenham Look’ was complete. It was made up of the concrete slab of the South Terrace, Leitch’s North Stand and two great double-decker East and West Stands that spoilt the view from Richmond Hill. When this image was taken the new West stand was still to be built.
