Description: A version of our Highbury print which pays homage to Arsenal's much loved home from 1913 to 2006.
Highbury was originally designed by Archibald Leitch and then significantly redesigned in the Art Deco style in the 1930s by Claude Waterlow Ferrier and William Binnie. Arsenal played their final game at Highbury on 7 May 2006 when Thierry Henry scored a hat-trick against Wigan Athletic to secure a crucial victory for the club. In 2010 the stadium was redeveloped and converted into flats. The Grade II listed buildings of the East and West Stands were retained as part of the development.
Highbury, Maine Road, Roker Park and Wembley are four new 'football' additions to our Lost Destination collection of prints. This series takes inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century, celebrating the unique but often forgotten beauty of buildings that in their heyday were destinations in their own right but have since been either immersed in the everyday or demolished.
