Wow, those are great pictures. I don't think I've ever seen a color photo of Ebbets or Shibe Park before.

My father - in his 70's - was at the game with me last week and commented on how many billboards the Sox have up. I said there were many more back in the 30's-60's. Look at all the outfield advertisements on the walls - that's outta control!

Check out "When It Was A Game 1 & 2". This is a two part baseball documentary originally presented on HBO in 1998 and can be found at most movie rental stores. What's unique about this film is that it covers the period of 1925-1970 and is filmed entirely in color. Much of the footage was shot by MLB players with home movie cameras and includes great shots of many of these old ballparks.

That grandiose building looming over the left field side is the U of Pitts' Cathedral of Learning (http://www.photohome.com/photos/pennsylvania-pictures/pittsburgh/cathedral-of-learning-1.html) Building. Quite a sight.
