Large 1926 photograph of baseball great Walter Johnson at the beach and surrounded by a bevy of beautiful ladies in swimsuits. My what would Mrs. Johnson have thought of this! He was leaving Florida for the baseball season and these high school girls were bidding him farewell. Issued by Underwood and Underwood and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well, this is one of only two known examples of this image we have ever seen.
