Vintage framed aerial view of Ohio Stadium during Red Grange's last collegiate game for Illinois in 1925. 84,295 patrons witnessed The Galloping Ghost's last game for the Illini, the highest attendance ever recorded for a sporting event to date.  Illinois defeated Ohio State 14-9, while Grange recorded two interceptions in the final minutes of play to secure the visitors the win.  This aerial shot was taken by Dr. Weaver and this is a Photostat copy printed by The Franklin Blue Print & Supply in Columbus, Ohio. It was gifted to OSU coach John W. Wilce and later purchased with a few other items out of his estate. This frame measures 20.5" wide and 16.5" tall.
