Downtown Clemson Fall 1977

In the fall of 1977 I took a bunch of B&W pictures of downtown Clemson. I wrote an article to go with the pictures. The article and pictures appeared in the 1978 TAPS, the Clemson yearbook. These pictures, which I took, were scanned from the 1978 TAPS, loaned to me by a friend. I offer these for those nostalgic Tigers - like me!

    That's such a cool story.
    The composition of this shot is great.

    I found this photo because you asked me to Explore My Photostream

    Great shot. I was there in 1977. I had a 1973 Pinto. I believe the huge tree you see on Bowman Field is now gone.
    Which roof?

    I've trying to remember that. I remember just walking up there. There was that building that has the restaurant on the second flor - may have been that or maybe Kellers. I'd have to go back and look. I need to do that anyway.

    Hi, Joel...Thanks for the memories!
    The photo of Clemson is great! Can I see the rest of them?! I believe this was taken from the upstairs Study Hall restaurant. Did you by chance take a photo of the bar at the Red Carpet that was used in Taps? The barkeep is my husband!

    Hey Joel, do you have any photos of the Christmas parade, circa 1973/1974?
