Pretty sure I came down those steps, as a youngster, when leaving the ground after the '68 game against Man U. It was really frightening as my feet didn't touch the ground from top to bottom!

I've been searching for pictures of the gate in use, but have been unsuccessful. They exist!
Not quite ‘in use’ but this is a photo I took from the outside the ground which clearly shows the entrance ‘doors’. Looks like there were two turnstiles. Sadly I don’t have a date but it would have been taken prior to the 1999/2001 redevelopment. The photo has been deposited, along with others, at the ECFC Museum.
