Title: Deconstructing Collingwood, part 2
From board to boundary...
IS an old VFL footy ground still a fair dinkum footy ground if it doesn't have a fair-dinkum old-fashioned scoreboard?
The Collingwood landmark what was the 1966 Victoria Park scoreboard was pulled down last January, as part of turning the ground into a community space.
In its place there are now generic boundary fence scoreboards. Not exactly full of character, but they do the job.
For more photos, including the inner-workings of the inner sanctum, see the scoreboardpressure website, created by Les Everett and Vin Maskell:
