Not unlike today, an open field was a good spot for a pick-up baseball game even back in 1902. Sports clothing has come a long way but so has clothing in general. What’s your favorite sport’s memory as a child? Leave it in the comment’s section below.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “Play Ball: 1902“:
Detroit circa 1902. “Photochrom Company building, side view.” In the early 20th century, the Photochrom chromolithography process was licensed by William Henry Jackson and his partners to make millions of color postcards from the black-and-white Detroit Publishing glass negatives (like this one) seen here on Shorpy. The lot next door was a good spot for pickup ballgames.
