Field of yesterday’s dreams


For 55 years, and for much of that time, these images from a local photographer’s collection have been largely unseen by the Mountaineer faithful.

Local photographer Scott Gibson captured the construction of the stadium in 1924, along with football games and other events held there. Gibson’s relatives donated part of his collection in the 1960s and Mountaineer Field photos this year to the WVULibraries’ West Virginia and Regional History Center.
