arsenal’s ‘highbury’, manchester city’s ‘maine road’, sunderland’s ‘roker park’, and old ‘wembley stadium’ are all featured as illustrations in UK design studio dorothy‘s ‘lost destination’ series. the prints are influenced by travel posters of the first half of the 20th century, celebrating the unique but often forgotten beauty of the buildings and locations of the past.

as the UK moves forward, the grand buildings of yesterday have been lost in the wake. both ‘maine road’–manchester city’s home from 1923 to 2002–and ‘roker park’–sunderland AFC’s home from 1898 to 1997–were completely demolished and replaced by housing. ‘highbury’–arsenal’s much loved home from 1913 to 2006–was redeveloped and converted into flats. ‘wembley stadium’ was completely destroyed in 2003 in order to make way for an updated version by the same name. 

 

‘lost destinations’ is a celebration of the four beloved and long serving stadiums, and the endurance of each through the highs, lows, heartaches and breakthroughs of british football.
