Post pictures of your stadium's expansion/evolution throughout the years

I love stadiums and their history. It's always interesting to me to see how they grow over time, and I just don't know much about others' besides BDS.

Faurot Field - got most of these from the Mizzou Archives..sorry I couldn't find many actual pics on google, so a lot are just the section plans

Image: http://umcspace.missouri.edu/historic/buildings/Stadium/images/1949-01.jpg


1961 east and west additions (just a blueprint, couldn't find pics. basically they just added seats to the northern part of the east and west stands if that makes sense)
Image: http://umcspace.missouri.edu/historic/buildings/Stadium/images/1961-01.jpg


1963 southwest addition (again no pics, top left shaded area is where they added the seats)

1965 southeast addition

1948 - East side lower level built - capacity 36k
1986 - West upper deck built - capacity 40,656 (YES, we went 48 YEARS with the stadium untouched -- and we wonder how we fell behind?)

Record attendance at Kyle is 90,079 on November 20th, 2010 for the Nebraska game.
Official capacity is 82,589.
I'm guessing we will approach a new record this September.

Great thread JDM. Love seeing these kind of things. I couldn't find every single expansion, but here is what I gathered up.

1948 - Capacity- 7,500


1955 - Capacity- 34,500


1970- Capacity - 61,261


1980 - Capacity, 72,169


1987-Present 85,214 to 87,451( minor changes in 2000 and 2003 to bump it up 2,000 more.)
