Curtain call for William Shakespeare on this day 403 years ago (aged 52).

 

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." - Macbeth

Its 80 years since Archibald Leitch (not that one) died aged 80.

 

Designed football stands and was much in demand in the early part of the 20th Century.

Much of his work has been demolished thanks to clubs redeveloping existing stadia or relocating, though some still exist , at Fulham and Everton, for example.
