May 16th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Tiger Band In 1940’s

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are of Tiger Band in an era long gone in the history of Clemson College.

The above picture was taken sometime in the mid 1940’s and shows the band coming into Memorial Stadium in the Northwest corner. You can also see Clemson Cadets marching in with the band onto the field.

As you can see, the North lower deck does not extend as far as it does today. Additional sideline seating on the North and South lower decks were added in 1958. You can also notice that there are no visible trees on the Northwest bank.

By the time the new West Endzone was built several years ago, two massive trees were growing on that same Northwest bank.

Also notice that the original West Endzone has not been built yet (it was completed in 1960). You can also see the prefabs where Littlejohn Coliseum now sits and where we broadcast the Tiger Pregame Show and Tiger Tailgate Show each Saturday.

The next picture is from around the same era and was taken in Anderson, SC. I assume that Tiger Band was invited to a parade, something that was very common during this era.
