BILLED as ‘a treasure chest of photographs that will stir the souls of Liverpudlians until the end of time’ the updated paperback version to the best selling hardback presents the images that have captured Liverpool Football Club in its most celebrated and darkest hours.
Spanning five decades, there are pictures right throughout the book that represent every era of the club giving Reds fans a chance to see some rare and never-before-seen pictures of their club.
The picture of Graeme Souness, Miss World, the European Cup and some cans of lager should bring a smile to faces old enough to remember the 1978 final, and the image of Fernando Torres readying himself to launch a snowball will resonate with some of the younger fans.
Phil Thompson and Steve Heighway’s modelling shoot from 1978 looks suspiciously like a ‘Saturday Night Fever’ re-enactment in questionable attire. While the image of Tommy Smith and John Conteh celebrating on the steps of St George’s Hall in 1973, after winning the UEFA Cup and the European and Commonwealth titles respectively heralded a proud day for Merseyside sport.
The book also contains pictures of a whole host of players past and present as well as containing the many iconic images.
