The ticket-buying process has seen much change over our 132 years with new developments in technology: the telephone, printers, computers, and most recently, the internet!

In honor of Single Ticket Day, we dug deep into our photo archive to share photos of past Single Ticket Days with you. When viewing the slide show below, click the button on the bottom right to make it full screen, then click “Show Info” at the upper right corner to see captions of the photos.

One of the most exciting things about Single Ticket Day for the UMS staff is hearing what shows you’re excited about. So tell us–what tickets are you buying today?
