The photo above is a photo showing the old Mechanical Hall. You can see clearly that it was located beside Hardin Hall. Mechanical Hall burned down in 1926 and Clemson began to work on a replacement building.
This photo below was taken on or before 1929 and shows the newly opened Riggs Hall in the distance as seen from what is now called Tillman Hall. You can also see the top of Hardin Hall on the left part of the photo behind the cannon. You can also see in the front of Riggs Hall where it looks like they removed the rubble of Mechanical Hall but had not planted grass.
The final photo below is a fuzzy small photo of that era, but it does show an interesting view of Riggs Hall from the main building (Tillman) from 1928. Here, you can see a better view of the area where Mechanical Hall was and that no grass has yet grown in the burned out plot.
