30December

Ibrox

On this day in 1899 Rangers played their first match at the new Ibrox stadium.

The match was a 3-1 victory over Hearts in the Inter-City League. Within months the stadium included two covered stands and had a capacity of 75,000.


Albion

Today in 1899 the Albion Motor Company was established. At first the firm made motor cars and commercial vehicles, but from 1913 concentrated on the latter. During World War I the premises were enlarged to produce military vehicles. The firm amalgamated with Leyland Ltd in 1951, and the works continued to make complete vehicles until the 1970s.


Today's recipe: prepare to welcome first footers with this sweet bannock.
