Rare Photo of Walter Johnson and Gabby Street

Here is a rare photo that we haven’t yet come across. We found it at the Detroit Public Library, of all places. Make sure you read the story about how Gabby Street was the only person to ever catch a ball thrown from the top of the Washington Monument. And, check out this great post which includes a radio broadcast of Walter Johnson calling a game.
