15th and Cumberland Field?

Does anyone have any information about 15th and Cumberland Field, the site of the first Tennessee Vols home games? I'd be surprised if there were any pictures, but I'm at least curious as to what currently stands in place of the field.

Walters Life Sciences building is on the site, I know photos exist, but haven't seen them online in a while. Was basically a flat field with a few small wooden bleachers scattered about.

You might find a pic in one of the old annuals.

Here is the earliest photo of a game featuring the Vols I have found in my admittedly quick search.

I thought the University Center is where the field used to be. Could be wrong, though.
