October 10th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

1950’s and 60’s Photos Of Clemson

 (Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are from the 1950’s and 1960’s and shows a few views of campus during that time. The above photo shows the campus and some classic 1950’s cars parked along the streets. I imagine parking on campus in the 1950’s was a bit easier than it is today!

The next photo is a postcard of the Clemson House, shortly after its completion in 1950. Clemson House opened on November 1, 1950. The hotel was constructed on a hill overlooking Clemson University's campus. It is located across from Bowman Field and in close proximity to the Clemson University Visitor and Alumni Center. From its front facing rooms visible is historic Tillman Hall, Memorial Stadium, and on clear days the Blue Ridge Mountains can be seen in the distance

The final photo is an aerial photo of the Clemson campus from the late 1960's.

(Note: If you have old pictures dating before 1990 that are Clemson related and you would like to share them, send them to me in an email with as much information about the picture as you can give and I will use it for a future “Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day”).
