Beautiful banner from the 1910's stating "Welcome Visitors" to the Homecoming celebration, or originally known as Ohio State Day. This banner shows an Ohio State ball carrier using his right arm to stiff arm his opponent. The first Ohio State Day was credited as a large success in 1912. As the Lantern put it, "The first thought which appears quickly to all of us is that these gatherings will renew old friendships, engender new ones and lead to a helpful relation among all our men, old as well as young." It still serves that purpose in the annual Homecoming celebration. This banner has already been professionally framed and measures 26.5" x 38.5".
