Today is the 50th anniversary of the opening of Dodger Stadium. These images from the USC Digital Library show the stadium’s progress from concept to construction site to sports venue.

To learn more about the history and controversial origins of Dodger Stadium, see L.A. as Subject’s post from last April, “A History of L.A.’s Baseball Stadiums: Stars, Angels, the Battle for Chavez Ravine.”
