Ten Days Before the 1961 NFL Championship

Today we start a series of images from the Green Bay Press-Gazette newspaper’s archive. The photos are of the Lambeau Field preparations from the week and days prior to the 1961 NFL championship game between the Packers and the New York Giants. The original newspaper caption that ran with the photo stated:

“City Stadium’s seats are filled with snow in December 1961, about 10 days before the NFL championship game against the New York Giants was played there on New Year’s Eve — December 31st.”
