1925 Photograph of Hall of Famer Hugh Jennings as he appeared for the last time in uniform with the Giants. He would finish the season and help John McGraw as the manager while McGraw was ill, but the strain was too much for Jennings who would suffer a nervous breakdown and essentially become a hermit, in and out of institutions until he died in early 1928. It is highly likely that this is the last image of McGraw ever taken and it presents beautifully in great shape, issued by the Keystone View company and with a full paper caption as well.
