Description

This image shows the Appalachian State Teachers College (1929-1967) baseball team playing at Red Lackey Field, located approximately where Holms Convention Center, built 2000, now stands. Fans are seated on bleachers to the right, with players positioned on the field and in a line in front of the bleachers. The first Administration Building, then the Home Economics Building, built 1905, can be seen in the clump of trees in the background to the right. The smokestack of the Steam Plant, built 1924, can be seen beyond the trees, as well as the houses on Faculty Street to the left. Cars are parked along the then divided highway US-321. The sign on the side of the road reads, "EAT." The billboard reads, "Winklers... Western..." "Coca-Cola, delicious and refreshing," and "Co-ed Snack...."
