Portsmouth Daily Times Coverage of the First Night Football Game in southern Ohio.

The history of the NFL's Portsmouth Spartans, including accounts of their first night game in September 1930, is well documented in the local newspaper, the Daily Times. In January 2017, Shawnee State University's Clark Memorial Library acquired its Historic Portsmouth Newspaper Collection, which included bound copies of the Portsmouth Times from the 1930s. This image captures one of those original bound volumes as it was being placed in temporary storage for future digitization.
