    I agree. I bet some far in the future renovation will make the current stadium look more like the original. Perhaps extending the roof out, among other things.

  5. Another nice find Mr. Peters. At about the 5:00 minute mark you can see a group of the old original 'box seat" chairs out in left field behind the end zone. There's also in that 10 minutes of video at least 3 late hits that would draw flags now.

    Here's a screencap:




    A few more grabs (the game was played December 30, 1962):

    the post-war backstop layout can be seen in the last pix.
    there were 2 sets of railings behind the plate, the 1st seat row was a few feet behind the screen.

    hard to believe that the re-signing of steve whitaker in '68 rated a presser with the obligatory snow shot, considering he was exposed in the expansion draft later that year...

    And given Roger Maris' number 9, after Rog was only gone for a year or two..

    Happened all the time. Several Yankees wore #3 after Ruth.

    Lp, I don't think that is a re-post. That's a great pic of the back of the bleachers which shows the plank structure (in the lower right portion) and the descending elevated subway line in the distance. I think that pic is from 1933-5, based on the pics below.


    First, a bigger version of the pic Lpeters199 found. Note the Mrs. Wagner's Pies and Coca-Cola ads:




    Then a zoom of the pic. I've never seen the Jayson ad, so if anyone has, please post other pics that show it, and/or give the date of other pics.




    The Mrs. Wagner's Pies ad was in place (in the same spot) from 1932-35. The Coca-Cola ad is visible in pics dated to 1933-4.


    1933:




    1934:




    1935:

    something that had been discussed before. above the facade were clusters of cone shaped projections and the question was - what are they?
    well, they are lights. in a rare pix with them lit from the '37 international golden gloves.

    I posted the Getty version of that pic a ways back, which is somewhat clearer. You can also see some interesting mottling on the frieze:




    Here's a companion pic from the same day, showing the Italian team giving the fascist salute before the match. June 8, 1937:
