Fenway, 1914 W.S., and 100,000 See Telling's Strollers vs. Hanna's Cleaners

The Library of Congress has some great photos (many are high resolution JPEGs) and book prints available on its online site. Here's two interesting ones:
- World's Series, Braves 5 - Athletics 4, 12 innings, Fenway Park, Oct. 12, 1914

- "Amateur championship game, Telling's Strollers vs. Hanna's Cleaners, Brookside Stadium--Sept. 20, 1914, attendance 100,000." (Cleveland, really about 85,000)
