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.

Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

P.S. Please send any historic photos you would like to share to webmaster@tigernet.com

Here we have a rather large aerial shot of the campus in the early 50s. Notice that Brackett Hall is in the photo and it was completed in 1951, but the old barracks are still in the photo so it has to be taken before the summer of 1954. This is probably the last good aerial photo of the old campus as the old barrack's days are numbered at this point.

One of the first things to go is the old smoke stack for the old boiler room. This is the only close up photo I've ever seen of that old smoke stack. You can also see the back of the second and third barracks in this photo too, as they won't be too far behind in being leveled.
