Two Days Before the 1961 NFL Championship

Today we present the second in a series of images from the Green Bay Press-Gazette that depict the days of preparation before the 1961 NFL championship game at City Stadium (now Lambeau Field).

The original caption for this photo was: “The bunting and ‘Titletown U.S.A.’ banners are up along the railing and the tarp is rolled back as the finishing touches are applied to the south end zone at City Stadium on December 29, 1961, two days before the NFL championship game between the Packers and New York Giants.”
