A special section on Vale’s most celebrated side – Freddie Steele’s “Iron curtain” (or as referred to by some “Steele curtain”) side.
Taken from a Sentinel FA Cup semi-final special on display at the Vale Vaults exhibition, here are some unique period portraits of the legendary Freddie Steele side pictured at home.
Thanks to Pete T, we have some photos of Vale fan Geoff Austin’s autograph book from which dates back to the 1950’s. It contains autographs of both Vale and Stoke players from that era.
Exclusive images and contemporary text from the ‘Pride of Port Vale’ booklet. The book celebrated the achievements of the legendary 1954 ‘Iron Curtain’ side. These are the original text and cartoons that appear in the 1954 booklet.
