Historic Clemson Photos #17

by -

I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo, submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®.

These historic posts will each have a sponsor with a very brief video message. After playing, the update and photos will replace the video. As you know, we have never charged for content since starting the site in 1995, but with the site as large as it is, we need to explore other ways to support the site and our families.
Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

This photo was taken around the early 60s. It surprised me because I never knew the Clemson Shoe Service was at this location. Like a lot of people, I always remembered it being further down the street.

In remembering this business from it's other location, I could see why they moved. It was always filled to the ceiling with shoes. Another thing I remember was that every time you went into the place it had a strong smell of shoe leather along with old wooden seats for trying on shoes. It was also a little noisy since they did a brisk business in shoe repair. I think they stayed in business until the early to mid-80s.

I had a chance to go back to Clemson over the 2005 holidays and I took a number of photos around town to compare the old photos to how it looks today. The above photo shows that while some areas of Clemson are undergoing change, some parts remain the same.
