October 3, 1959

Check this out…it’s a photo that I found in an old book at my family’s store. It was taken by Ray Gora and ran in the Chicago Tribune on October 3, 1959:

Very cool pic, Zack. It’s funny to see how conservatively people dressed for a baseball game back in the day. And there are so few women! I can only spot six. Let’s play “Where’s Waldo.” How many women can YOU spot? : )

If it weren’t for the lack of Ivy and the fact that the fans are not obviously wasted, I’d swear that was Wrigley Field bleacher bum behavior.

Oh, and I can see 8 definite women, and about 3 “maybes”.

Hahahaha that’s amazing. Shows you how much those Chicago Flubs fans hate the White Sox.

i count 10

Very cool pic indeed. Thanks for posting it.

EVERYONE-
Glad you like the pic. Apparently it’s a really famous image, but I’d never seen it ’til recently. Happy New Year.

That’s Al Smith of the White Sox watching a homerun by the Dodgers? Charlie Neal. Here’s a different angle:

Great pic Zack! Happy New Year!

Wow,

And that wasn’t even light beer. Hopefully for the guy below, it was at least a little cold and refreshed him after looking up after that homer.

It is funny sometimes what you can find if you Google a certain baseball phrase or moment. And if you go to Youtube, it can be worth an entire afternoon sometimes checking out the wild videos.

Great find, awesome that you have that kind of collectible in your family’s possession.

Thanks! And even though it’s a bit late…you too.

RAYSRENEGADE-
Much appreciated. And you’re right about YouTube. I have gotten lost in that site for hours, and not just with baseball stuff.

Cool pic, I’m glad someone posted this, this picture was actually taken by my great grandpa who as you said was Ray Gora, he passed about 6 years ago, and at the funeral were all of his pictures that he had taken including this one which was the one he was known for, he wrote for the tribune for nearly his whole life and would be happy to see that others noticed what he did, thank you for posting this

Wow, awesome. Very glad to hear that, and you’re welcome. Thanks for the comment.
