At Least the two beautiful old grandstands are still there

The Junction Oval aka St Kilda Cricket ground was one of my favorite grounds Sandringham FC played a full season there in 1966

One of the best grounds Billy. Loved going there watching the VFA finals.

I don't think they are allowed to bulldoze theose old two grandstands.

Will always remember Bill Lawry batting for about 5 days for Northcote against Essendon in a cricket final circa 1967 or 1968. He batted through the entire innings.

The corpse with pads on, as one unkind English journo described him.

I can clearly remember a brilliant cartoon in the Sporting Globe with Bill looking over his big nose with cobwebs between the stumps & a group of St Kilda players running around the boundary waiting for the footy season to start. Classic !!
