Hibernian historian Tom Wright recalls that record Easter Road crowd of 1950.



Aulder Than Shrink This Radge
My dad was there.

Said it was unreal. So many fans crammed together. He used to stand at the corner with his mates where the floodlight was between the shed and the east terracing, so they could see Gordon Smith taking corners and sprinting down the right wing. Fans would be queuing back into Easter Road and also way down St Clair Street.

Even back then when Hibs were probably the best team in Britain never mind Scotland, we struggled in derbies.
