If any one person can be credited with the building of Liverpool’s home ground it is Archibald Leitch.

The Glasgow-born architect shot to fame in the early part of the 20th century for his work on football stadiums across Britain and was hired by Liverpool in 1906, shortly after the club’s second league title triumph.

Anfield had changed very little since the days when Everton had been tenants but the directors decided it was time for a revolutionary re-design and Leitch delivered.

He changed the appearance of the ground almost entirely, with the most striking new additions being a Main Stand that featured his trademark gable roof and a huge bank of uncovered terracing that would soon become known as the Spion Kop.

As a finishing touch, large exit gates on each side and a smart new perimeter wall were also erected, making Anfield one of the finest grounds in the land.
