9/25/55, Leo walks away from the Giants. Love the "PUT A Smile IN YOUR SMOKING" on the old Chesterfield ad, only there for a short time.

I was wondering if you could help me out. I think the man below Barney Doyle is my great great uncle. I was wondering if you knew anything about him or where he was from? If he is who I think he is, his name was Bernard Doyle and he was born in Ireland in 1890 and was from Sallynoggin in Co. Dublin. His parents would have been Kate and Christopher Doyle. Any information you have on him or about the event at the polo grounds would be much appreciated.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Edit: Another very interesting item, a reply to a recent NYT article about the Brush Stairway adjoining the old PG area. Looks like County Dublin is a match. Do you have a relative David O'Connor in the UK? Mr. Doyle may very well be your great great uncle.

A source for some nice shots (some of which are already on this thread):
Still patiently waiting @ at Sullivan & McKeever (once THE corner in MLB) for the Brooks to return from their extended road trip.

I like how the photographer took the photo not worrying about the kid lounging around upper left.
