2012/13 sees the 100th anniversary of the club’s move from Plumstead to Islington, and to celebrate the Arsenal History Society are publishing details of that move – and proposing to Arsenal FC (via AISA) a series of activities that could mark this momentous occasion.
The full story of the move is to be found in the book Woolwich Arsenal, the club that changed football – and we have started to put a log of dates relating to the move in our Anniversary chart.
3: Proposals for a major exhibition to celebrate 100 years of Arsenal in Islington at the Emirates Stadium.
4: The commemoration of the men who moved the Arsenal: Jack Humble, William Hall, Henry Norris
We are also doing a weekly review charting the club’s last days in Plumstead and the move to Highbury.
