In 1945 Babe Ruth was relegated to a side show in Main of all places as he was recruited for name recognition to referee a wrestling match in Portland. While in the city he was reunited with a former Red Sox teammate Harry Lord. A weird and sad image as it shows how far Ruth had fallen near the end of his life. Issued by the Associated Press and with a full paper caption the back, the image presents well with some chipping and creasing from news-room use.
