          I had to pull together several different images to come up with this final version...so there's some obvious "lack of image" spots. It was quite a challenge...but all the players are accounted for. Cheers! ~B

          • Question for you guys

            These panoramics are amazing but I was wondering who bought them back then? Were they sold at the games or were they considered too expensive.

              I'd have to guess that they were mainly made for players/coaches and the owners/stockholders of the clubs. Perhaps the better saloons and newspapers/sporting magazines received them as well. I seriously doubt that they were sold at the ballparks (yes, expensive), but I have no proof of that. Otherwise, I'd further guess that anyone could contact the original photographer to purchase a copy as well (although I'm sure not many did).

                    Speaking of 'large and clear images', the past few posts (and more to follow) are actually re-posts of images that I have found in a larger (better) state. So here they come.....

                      Yes - It's discussed in the Chicago Tribune the day after the game. Apparently, it was common to carry a large hankerchief back then. It was very cold and windy, but the bowler hats tended to block people's views. So fans took off their hats, but tried to keep their heads warm by tying the hankies on top of their heads.
