Lost Destination: Roker Park
Roker Park once hosted crowds 75,000 strong and was the home of the famed Roker Roar. Legend has it that in 1973, when Billy Hughes scored against Manchester City in an FA Cup tie, the noise from the crowd could be heard six miles away. Sunderland played their final game at Roker Park on 13 May 1997, beating Liverpool 1-0 before moving to the Stadium of Light. Roker Park has since been demolished and replaced by housing.
One of four football stadium additions to our Lost Destination series of prints which takes inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century. They celebrate buildings that in their heyday were destinations in their own right but have since been either immersed in the everyday or demolished.
