About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Suit and Tie

It's amazing to see all the men dressed in coat and tie to go to a ball game. Even the boy with the mitt has a tie.

Boy With Mitt

Interesting picture, obviously Hilltop Park preceded Yankee Stadium. The Highlanders preceded the Yankees.The boy with the baseball fielders glove preceded the millions of kids that have gone to professional baseball games bringing their mitts in hopes of snagging a ball hit into the stands. I wonder if they were allowed to keep the ball in those days?
