The Charlotte Coliseum is located at 2700 East Independence Blvd. in Charlotte, NC. In 1955 when it officially opened the structure was covered by the largest unsupported steel dome in the world. Up until when later renovations were undertaken the Coliseum could accommodate anywhere between ten-to-fourteen thousand visitor seats. The building has survived and has been re-named the Bojangles’ Coliseum.
This circa-1959 image was taken from the parking lot behind the Coliseum and East Independence Blvd. is visible on either side behind building. The view, for the most part, contains 1950s domestic automobiles and at least one import.
