  • Collection summary Image from behind home plate of National League's Chicago Cubs baseball player batting during warmup while teammates line up in the foul zone, during a 1912 City Series between the Cubs and the American League's Chicago White Sox at Comiskey Park. Smoke billowing from the field is probably from a fire set to dry the infield. Billboard advertisements for The Fair department store and the Chicago Tribune newspaper are visible on the outfield wall in the background. Comiskey Park was located at 324 West 35th Street and bounded by West 34th Street, South Shield's Avenue (formerly Portland Avenue), and South Wentworth Avenue in the Armour Square community area.
