A City United Calendar
25 October 2023 - 31 January 2024
Our latest Pitch Gallery exhibition, A City United, provides an endearing snapshot of 1970s football culture in the heart of Manchester, courtesy of the late photographer Iain S. P. Reid.
This collection of portraits were taken at derby matches between 1976 and 1977, featuring Manchester City and Manchester United fans decked out in their matchday finery ahead of the big game.
The photographs perfectly capture a sense of anticipation, excitement and joy around one the city's biggest football fixture, and offer a warm and surprising counterpoint to the traditional narrative of hostility around derby matches.
