Bill Shrimpton started to watch Fulham in late 1940's.  He paints an evocative picture of the surrounding area with wood planks part of the skyline and coal dust on the Crabtree. He gives an explanation for "Fulhamish" and tells us about "the swans over the cottage" and leads us to the "gates of heaven."  After watching this video go to Video Vintage to see a clip of the Newcastle game that both he and Denis Fenton spoke so highly about.

 

Make a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy.......
