The F.A. Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, 1923
Aerial photograph of Wembley Stadium before the start of the 1923 F.A. Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. This was the first Cup Final held at the then brand-new Wembley Stadium, which had been built in 300 days at a cost of 750, 000. Before the match began a crowd of about 100, 000 (most without a ticket) stormed through the gates and into the stadium. This meant that there was approximately 200, 000 people in a ground designed for 127, 000. The photograph shows the scene as the spectators moved onto the pitch, due to the pressure of people behind them. The match started 40 minutes late and was won by Bolton 2-0"
