Default Clemson in 1894

This is before there was even football at Clemson. Football started in 1896 at Clemson.

I love history. Just to visit for a day back then what an experience that'd be.

Same here! I imagine all of the open space back then. Lots of rural farmland with a little ol' Clemson in the middle.

The building in the background on the right, is that Tillman Hall?

Are they walking down toward what is now the soccer field.

Well I open the link and got my answer. It is/was the original Tillman Hall.


I wish we had some like this at least once a week to see these old pictures.

Follow Scott Rhymer on his social media platforms. He does an excellent job and post historical pictures all the time. I think he does it daily or dang near daily.

Technically at that time it was old main, it wasn't renamed Tillman until 1946

Looking at that picture is that looking up the street to the front of Tillman today or would that be from the back of Tillman Hall today.

If from the front the building to the left is not there today. If from the back of Tillman today is that the same building that is attached to Tillman today?

From looking at Tillman today when the link ends the adjacent building to Tillman looks different from the old building to the left of the old Tillman so was it torn down when the new Tillman/Old Main was built.

Trying to figure out where those kids were standing back in the day. Coming down toward the old Bowman field or Going toward the soccer complex today.

I assume the old Tower was burned and torn down from this picture and a new Tower in Tillman was built. So is the adjacent building to Tillman today (to the right facing Tillman today) was built back then or added later.

The view is looking at the SW corner of Tillman. If you look hard, you can see the front tower which is on the east side of Tillman. The building to the left is on the west side and where replaced by the tin cans.

So I'm looking at the back of the New Tillman in the picture where Tillman is on fire?


https://tigerpregameshow.blogspot.co...c-picture.html

When I look at the picture near the bottom showing Tillman today coming toward Tillman from the main road, that would be from the opposite side of the view we see in the fire?

Looking at Tillman today, there is an adjacent building to the right. Thats not the adjacent building to Tillman in the picture of the fire. I assume all that was torn down after the fire.

OK

The first picture was taken very close to where the door of the Student Union currently sits.

The fire picture is almost the same angle, simply closer.

I love that you guys are talking about this picture so much. It shows that there are a lot of people who are still interested in history and how things began or were. This is great!

I love these type pictures of Clemson.

I could come up with more questions but I might start bugging these men with them.



I like to try and picture Clemson looking down on the University back in those days as compared to today.
