This is from the Notre Dame Archives YouTube account, which sadly has only four posted videos. This was posted nearly 2 years ago, but this is the first time I've seen it. It's titled "Notre Dame Football 1927-1931," but I think we can narrow it down to 1927-1929. The footage (which is silent) appears to be from at least 2 games at Cartier Field (which hosted its final ND game in 1928) and a ND-USC game at Soldier Field (we played them there in 1927 and 1929).

Cartier was a wooden structure and out of date even in the late 1920s, but it looks better than the monstrosity that is becoming Crossroads.
