I will be presenting two slide shows on Red Faber in the Chicago area on Saturday, Jan. 6.
Grayslake Historical Society
9 am Saturday, Jan. 6
State Bank of the Lakes community room
50 Commerce Drive
Chicago Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research
1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6
Roden Branch/Chicago Public Library system
6083 Northwest Highway
Books will be available for sale. If you are in the Chicago area on Saturday, I hope to see you there.
MEANWHILE, here is a link to a YouTube slideshow featuring photos from baseball's "Deadball Era." Though Faber is not shown, there are plenty of Chicago photos (as well as one of the great Honus Wagner). Note what access the news photographers received during game action.
