Before game number two of the World Series, Philadelphia was buzzing with baseball fever. This rare look at the stadium from behind the left field wall shows the stadium, crowds, and spectators milling about. The image shows the long line of fans waiting to get into the ballpark while kids and vendors were already cashing in by giving these eager fans their fill of newspapers and food. The reverse of the scoreboard is visible as is part of the grandstands and playing surface! Issued by Underwood and Underwood and stamped on the back with a full paper caption, this is one of the better images of it's kind we have ever seen! Photo is a double weight and in nice shape overall. The diversity of the crowd is fantastic as the mob is filled with black, white, women, children and a ton of police officers!
