Yep, about what I remember it looked like when I entered Clemson in fall of 1962. Was a bustling area, even way back then.

Wasn't there a working bowling alley downtown at that time?

I bought many a pair there when I was young. Mr. Keller always put newspaper down on the wooden floor of the changing/bathroom to be sure they did not get dirty.

Sinclair gas station and Gary Cooper on the big screen, a blast from the past. Based on vehicle traffic in photo and year
of cars, a prosper time.

I would have thought it was early to middle fifties, but I see a 1959 Chevy parked on the right side.

Except for the cars and what was playing at the theater not much changed between this photo and 1968.

We took our grandson to downtown Clemson yesterday and what a cluster it is. I have seen a worse looking place with all the apartments/condos and streets that don't go anywhere. Wow what a mess.
