1937 Snapshot photograph from the estate of a former Negro League player showing the Newark Eagles team bus smashed into a diner. A unique image that we have never seen before and can find no record of the event, the note on the back reads, "2:30am 1937 averted head on collision". You can clearly see the team name on the bus and despite the wear it presents well. A fun piece of history with more research needed.
