Fratton Park turnstile

Fratton Park turnstile

I think this is a great object as it reminds me of my first trip to Fratton Park. You’d have to queue up to pay the man sitting behind the turnstile, then he’d release the brake and it would clunk around. This meant you were now in the ground – which was always a magical feeling. Hundreds of thousands of people would have passed through this turnstile, and no doubt some were lifted over it!
