October 11th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Death Valley In 1960’s

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photo is from the 1960’s and shows a much different looking Death Valley on game day. One thing about games in this era that you notice when you look at pictures is that orange is almost non-existent in the stands. That is mainly because gentlemen were wearing suits to the game.

This photo also shows the old press box on the South Stands. As I have stated before, the only negative of adding the South Upper Deck is that we lost the sightline of Cemetery Hill and the trees that tower over it. Those trees are now blocked by the upper deck.

(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”).
