Detailed Aerial Photo of Griffith Stadium and Neighborhood

Griffith Stadium in 1925

Now this is a terrific photo of Griffith Stadium, taken from the air. We posted a smaller version of this yesterday but we wanted to share the much larger version with you independent of that post. Click on it for a larger version and study the details of it. Pretty cool to see the houses in the neighborhood. You can also see some people on the field either taking batting practice, or just playing around. I don’t see anyone on the pitcher’s mound, so maybe the guy at the plate is a coach, hitting flyballs to the outfielders gathered in left field.
