Note that the double decker stand at the Vetch has not even been built at this date, 1921.

Incredible. I looked at the streets - not a car in sight. Then looked outside the Glamorgan pub, is that the remains of all the horse and carts that would have brought there on the day? Perhaps bringing some of the fans. Looks like horse poo and water running off to the drains where the horses have been fed and watered?
