Memorial Stadium In 1950’s
(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photo is of Memorial Stadium in the late 1950’s facing east.
You can notice that this picture was taken after the original Press Box was built (this one is actually bigger than the original Press Box).
You can also note that the wooden bleachers are still being used. Those wooden bleachers would be replaced by aluminum in 1972.
This picture was taken after the expansion of Memorial Stadium in 1958, which helps me pin the date of the photo to 1959 or 1960.
