Artful Prints Conjure Up Lost Football Stadiums

Dorothy-Design Boom-Wembley

The old footy stadiums of Wembley and Highbury may be gone but they’re far from forgotten as these nostalgic prints prove. They are the latest additions to the Lost Destination series of pictures from design studio and firm Londonist favourite, Dorothy (we previously featured their beautifully brutal concrete huggers).

There are four dear departed sporting venues in all (the two in London plus Maine Road and Roker Park) taking their place alongside other lost gems, including the Euston Arch and Stockwell Bus Garage. For the record: Wembley was demolished in 2003, while Arsenal’s Highbury was yuppified in 2006 into new flats — although the Grade II listed parts were retained as part of the development.

All four illustrated prints are available in two sizes from Dorothy's website, as are the previous designs in her Lost Destination series of prints.

Love these prints and would definitely buy one... but bit hesitant about the "Discover Yesterday's Forgotten Future" on them. Kinda ruins it

Why on earth does your text above list STOCKWELL BUS GARAGE as no longer existing? It still exists as it has since the 1950's. A very surprising error .. please correct it ASAP.
