Description

Presented are (3) distinct original photographs from the Polo Grounds in New York City. These incredible silver oxide photos include an image of the re-opening of the ballpark in 1911. The Polo Grounds had burned down in early 1911, and a hastily constructed iron-and-wooden grandstand was built and opened on June 28, 1911. This 5x7 image shows thousands of fans in the stands enjoying the sunny afternoon. The Culver Pictures image is in (EX) condition with mild creasing visible on the surface. The second image is dated October 6, 1913 but most likely is from October 7, 1913, placing the image at the first game of the 1913 World Series. This 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 photo is in (VG-EX) condition, as three of the four corners have been clipped. The last photograph, measuring 4x6, shows the grandstands of the Polo Grounds and was produced by Bain News Service. This image is in (EX-MT) condition and is not dated. All three images feature the proper stampings from either Culver Pictures or Bain News Service on the reverses.
