U of D Football Scoreboards

I just happen to be filing away some football pictures and just realized that there must have been a change in the scoreboards that were used back when UD had a football team.

Don’t know when the change was made, but this first one has written on the back: “new electrical scoreboard donated by Chevrolet” and has a date stamp “Sept 26 1934″


The second scoreboard just has the date stamp” Oct 18, 1953″


The second one would have been much easier to update. Putting up all the players numbers must have been a pain to keep track of if someone had to leave or exchange for another team member during the game.
