Elegy for West Ham

Elegy for Upton Park, by the gentle author

The gentle author of the Spitalfields Life blog writes: “The departure of West Ham football team from the Boleyn Ground in Upton Park after more than a century, prior to a move to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, is an event of such momentous import that contributing photographer Colin O’Brien could not resist going down after the final game to capture the drama outside the pitch while I interviewed a fan to get a personal testimony of this historic watershed.” Read the interview and see Colin’s pictures here.
