Old photographs of Palace fans

I had heard that one of Palace's offices was flooded or burnt out and a lot of historical photograph's were lost to the ages.
Would be nice to see if anyone has any collection of shots of fans from the early days of the clubs following or any nostalgic photos of fans.

This isn't necessarily of Palace but was taken at a cup final at the Crystal Palace.

I'm not much of a collector but this is my old photo of Palace fans on the terraced (well, mud banked) side of former ground The Nest

Ian King used it in his book 'A Complete Record'



There were a handful of women on the terraces even then



This one below is Croydon Library's, so a poor image as it is a photo of a photo

Again it is Palace fans at The Nest, but this time the opposite side - the terraced paddock at the front of the grandstand, with those in the seats behind

Amazing Dorking. These pictures are wonderful, especially the top one.

A bit of a jump in the ages with this photograph, unsure whether this chap is a Palace fan but it's quite a cool photo!

Interesting peice of Edwardian stadium design - Cantilever Mudbanks.

Presumably the wooden pillars are there to reinforce the hundreds of tons of earth that formed the 'terraces' the majority of the crowd inside the ground were stood on?

If you have ever visited the CP National Sports Centre, that bowl shape is still quite obvious even over a century later!

Funny you say that. I remember a school trip and a local historian showing us all the outlines of the structures which once stood in the park including the bowl and the old gardens which were in front of the burnt down Crystal Palace. At 16 i found it really boring , Would absolutely love it now.

Probably not Palace fans but just local kids, but I loved being at Dover in the small seated away stand on the side, and seeing the fans who had climbed trees behind the ground to watch the game!

It possibly could be, although the crowd looks VERY deep, and The Nest was only a very small ground (albeit full to bursting by the time we outgrew it in 1924)

Where did you find the picture? Was it tagged as being of Crystal Palace?

Found it going through a few photos on google while on my phone, for the life of me, I can't find where it was from now but it was tagged as being Crystal Palace fans.

I'm not quite old enough for the pic to trigger personal memories, but it did not look The Nest or SP from vintage photos that i have seen. After that google was my friend! 1920s Villa Park; the home of the flat cap! Great thread. Keep the pics coming.
