This photo shows Millwall fans climbing onto the floodlight posts and scoreboard to watch a match against Newcastle at The Den in 1957.

The issue of safe standing at grounds in Scotland is one that is mentioned from time to time.

It was decided a while back that Scottish clubs can have safe standing areas but as of yet no top tier club has taken up that chance.
