THE FIRST GAME AT MICHIGAN STADIUM, OCT. 1, 1927 photo picture wall art print for sale. This rare and historic OPENING DAY AT THE FIRST GAME AT MICHIGAN STADIUM October 1, 1927 photo print for sale was more than likely taken from an open cockpit bi-plane with a hand-held film camera. Considering the difficulty of capturing such an aerial image over 90 years ago in such a plane, the photo that these professionally restored historical prints are made from is quite good---you can even make out the rows of Model-T automobiles parked along Stadium Blvd. Prior to this Michigan football games were played across the tracks at Ferry Field in Ann Arbor. In this historical FIRST GAME AT MICHIGAN STADIUM the Michigan Wolverines beat Ohio Wesleyan 33-0.
