LOOK: Clemson Historic photo #120 'Early Homecoming Displays'
|Thursday, July 30, 2020, 8:31 AM- -|
TigerNet will be posting several historic Clemson photos during this difficult time with no Clemson sports.
Long-time TigerNet member Mintaka® submitted many of the photos, and we appreciate him being part of the TigerNet family.
Mintaka's take: Homecoming displays have come a long way. Take for example the photo of the homecoming display below, which was from the 1958 season. That's supposed to be a Wake Forest Demon Deacon that the Tiger has cornered on a goal post.
Below is another from the 1958 season.
These displays got a little better as we got into the 1960s. The one below is from the 1961 season.
By the late 60s these displays started to get some size to them as shown in the photo below from the 1967 season.
This last photo shows a clever one with two tigers pulling on a Maryland terrapin. Notice how it spans the road?
Feel free to share your thoughts that come to mind about our latest historical photos. Hopefully, everyone will enjoy looking back over the years at Clemson.
