How many remember going to Highbury? There will come a time when the answer will be none – though not for a long while, hopefully! But we know of no one who recalls visiting the club when it was in South London. Finnish supporter @hente_afsc has been researching the club’s roots and his findings are on the AISA Arsenal History Society pages. There are maps and photographs. So if you fancy delving into deep history, take a peek!

Part 1 – Maps showing the exact locations of the club’s history in Plumstead

Part 2 – Arsenal’s stadia before Highbury, what do they look like now
