|Historic Clemson Photos #2
I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo. This year we have done a lot of work on organizing and tagging all of our photos and getting them into our new gallery system. As I was starting to work on some of the historic photos, mostly submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®, I thought it would be fun to re-post some of them, since it has been quite a while since they were first posted. Mintaka has graciously allowed me to re-post these, along with his comments on each.
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
Today's photo was taken on Band Day in Death Valley in 1961 (I think). Notice how the seats on the sides of the North Stands are lighter in color? I think that's because they were part of the 1958 expansion to the stadium because they match the color of the upper sections. If you look back at yesterday's photo you can kind of see the end sections of the stadium as being only half sections.
By the way, what ever happened to Band Day?
