Description

Inside view of Ohio Stadium (also known as the "Horseshoe" or the "Shoe" because of its unique horseshoe shape), the football stadium at Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, ca. 1935-1943. Architect Howard Dwight Smith designed the plans for Ohio Stadium, earning him an award from the American Institute of Architects. Ohio Stadium was built in 1922 and is home to the Ohio State Buckeyes football team. The original stadium held 66,000 spectators. With renovations throughout the years, the stadium now has a seating capacity of 102,329. While in this image the south end of the stadium is open, in 2001 permanent stands were added to the south end closing the stadium off. This photograph is one of thousands collected for the Ohio Guide, part of the American Guide Series compiled by the Works Progress Administration from 1935-1942.
