Description: This photograph, taken in 1923, depicts the Ohio State University football team playing outside the recently completed Ohio Stadium. The stadium itself is architecturally significant for several reasons. It was the first two-tiered stadium to be constructed in the shape of a horseshoe. And it was one of the first stadiums constructed out of concrete. Furthermore, at the time of its completion in 1922 it was the largest stadium west of the Allegheny Mountains.
This unique structure earned its architect and designer,
Howard Dwight Smith, a gold medal from the American Institute of Architects. Smith was a professor and the resident architect at Ohio State University as well as the designer for many prominent buildings across central Ohio including Columbus's City Hall. His signature can be found in the bottom right-hand corner of this photograph.

Description: Original description reads: "Freighter passing the stadium. Cleveland Municipal Stadium and freighter entering harbor."
Cleveland Municipal Stadium was completed in 1931 and at that time it had the largest individual seating capacity of any outdoor arena in the world, at 78,189 seats. It was one of the early multi-purpose stadiums, built to accommodate both baseball and football, as well as many other events over the course of its history. By March 1, 1997, due mainly to the moving of the Cleveland Browns football team to Baltimore, Cleveland Municipal Stadium had been completely demolished and the debris had been removed to clear way for construction of a new stadium.
