    Neat photos, I don't think I'd seen them before.

    There's been a fair bit written about this ballpark, though I wish the SABR BioProject had a full writeup (some of the interesting "bios" there are of ballparks).

    As many people may know already, part of the wall is still standing on Fourth Avenue, which is a very busy thoroughfare these days.
    Thanks, VIBaseball. Yes, I've developed a strong interest in the Deadball Era, and the old wooden ballparks that predated the steel-and-concrete stadiums. I am hopeful that others who read this thread may add some photos of the Brooklyn team from this period--ESPECIALLY the 1899-1900 NL champions.

    I've just noticed that the composite team photo in #14 is actually the 1899 Superbas, the champions for 1900. The picture includes Doc McJames, Jim Hughes, and John Anderson, who all played for the team in 1899 but not in 1900, and excludes Jimmy Sheckard and Lave Cross, who did not play for the Superbas in 1899 but were with them in 1900. I've corrected that post and replaced the picture that I had originally attached with a better copy of the same. The composite in post #15 is the 1900 Superbas team.

    This undated studio portrait by Brooklyn photographer T.W. Taylor of outfielder Jimmy Sheckard was probably taken during his time with the Superbas, 1897-98 or 1900-05:
