Boston Public Library releases old photos/Lots of Tigers shots

Recommended Posts


would like to thank a user from WSI, a Chicago native and die hard Boston fan, named Fenway, for posting this link. That's where I got it. I'm friends with him on facebook so I doubted he would mind. I spent an hour today looking through that.

THANKS ROB! They are entering the site's collection and I'm retouching them to make them pop too. Love this stuff!

I love how the Fenway dugout wall is already cracking all along it's length 80 years ago. How do you hold a place together that is that old, and was probably thrown together in a hurry in the first place.
