FANS came by motor car, motor coach or motor bike, to watch the Rovers in Division One nearly one hundred years ago.

This image, which takes us back to the 1920s, shows a car park down at Ewood for a home match.

Every conceivable inch of space has been taken, to cram in as many cars as possible on the small space available.

Maybe the police officer - there is a blurred image of a uniformed constable, on the right, leaning against the old gas lamp - behind him is a police box - has directed the drivers to within an inch of the adjacent vehicle.

There are dozens of gleaming cars parked here, the majority with folding canvas roofs, no doubt owned by the wealthy businessmen of the town; indeed a few of them, have been caught on camera, in their collars, ties and bowlers.

For others, charabancs provided the transport from town - and there's one at the front which has its roof folded down, open to the weather - or it was motorbike and side car.

Across the road is the works of Harry Oates and Sons, with Healds and Reeds also in big letters over the door.

Do you recognise where this car park was, close to Blackburn Rovers' ground?
