Wembley Stadium, 1947

Wembley Stadium and its twin towers

This is a external view of Wembley Stadium and the famous twin towers taken from the busy car park in 1947.

The original Wembley Stadium, officially known as the Empire Stadium, was a football stadium, standing on the site now occupied by the New Wembley Stadium that opened in 2007.

It was famous for hosting the annual FA Cup finals, five European Cup finals, the 1948 Summer Olympics, the 1966 World Cup Final, the final of Euro 96, and the 1985 Live Aid concert.

The stadium's first turf was cut by King George V, and it was first opened to the public on 28 April 1923. It was built by Sir Robert McAlpine

John Rocque Map of Wembley, Kingsbury, Willesden and Harlesden (1762)
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Harrow in the northwest to Harlesden in the southeast.
