A wonderful color photo of The Auburn Stadium from 1940

I was pretty proud of finding that black and white Plainsman shot of The Auburn Stadium because it was the only photo of Auburn Stadium, i.e. the words “The Auburn Stadium” I’d ever seen, maybe the only photo there was to see. But it wasn’t. It isn’t. There’s another one, and what it lacks in letters it makes up for in living color.

From the 1941 Glom (only a year away from those jerseys being green).
