Old Timey Baseball Photographs


I stumbled upon this collection of early 1900 and before baseball photographs that The Cleveland Public Library has in their collection, but also present online. Here's the link to the archived photographs, its a good way to kill some time on a weekend day.

Here's a few examples of the collection:
