Lost Destination: Wembley
Wembley was built for the British Empire Exhibition of 1924 and was initially known as the Empire Stadium. Designed by Sir John Simpson and Maxwell Ayrton, it was built in 300 days and completed only four days before the famous 1923 'White Horse' FA Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. Once described by Pelé as ‘the cathedral of football’ Wembley, along with its iconic twin towers, was demolished in 2003 and replaced by the new Wembley Stadium.
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.
