    Here's an image of Fenway Park during the year 1940-46:



    It obviously looks a lot different, and what's different about it? Look very closely at the picture, you'll find a lot of different features of Fenway.

    I figured I'd made some contributions to the Fenway page so here goes...

    Obviously not much has changed to Fenway's outer facade in nearly a hundred years. Unsure of the date.


    A collection taken from around the same time. Unsure of the date.




    Fenway postcard circa 1915 or so.


    Newspaper ad for Fenway's first opening day.


    And lastly can you picture Fenway with a full upper deck? It almost happened a few years back, these are from an orginazation called Save Fenway Park. It also shows how much larger these new corporate ballyards have become.

    The proposed change compared to Camden Yards. Looks like it would have been a winner to me, might have been rough without a roof though.


    Clay cross-sections of Fenway and Coors Field illustrate how much closer you would have been to the action.


    And a promotional drawing of the sideview.

    A closer view of the same type of "map" of Fenway posted on the first page. This one is dated 1917.

    Wow it's cool seeing the Fenway Park photos. It hasn't changed much since the 40's. I was born on the same day as the opening of Fenway Park, April 20th. You said earlier that you have 15 years to see Fenway, you think Fenway will be replaced in about 15 yrs. If so then I'll definately go to see a game there, even though I'll probaly just sit there and enjoy a game and won't root for anybody.
