So what was the building overlooking the pitch ?

Genuinely interested 

It was the building that New Brighton Tower (think a slightly smaller Blackpool Tower) was built from.

I can't place a picture on here, but it's on this ...

The Tower was demolished in 1920.  The building, hotel & ballroom, in 1969.

I was trying to find a liverpool ground that might have been the answer to brad wiggins question earlier

Pretty sure it says NB played at an 80k capacity stadium way back

Apparently so - Was for a long time the biggest sports stadium in Northern England - on a par with the Crystal Palace 

Have seen figures of 100,000 capacity quoted in some articles 

Get a better idea as to its size from picture below

Spoke to some Pompey fans and their shirt sponsor at the time was Ty Beanie Babies. A big red  ❤️ With TY in the middle. They hated it.

You are so close to embedding an image there 

I know it's probably not Chelsea, but Chelsea 

Ace picture though

First effort.

You're right. It's not Chelsea.
