Early Baseball Photo from Pikes Peak YMCA Colorado Spring
What we love:
We love vintage photography and especially group shots.
Their faces, clothes and poses always leads me to wonder what the story is.
What brought them together and made the event so special that they had to document it?
Who are they and what were their lives like? So many questions!
This is an original photo and not a reproduction! It likely dates from the 1920s or 30s by the style of the baseball uniforms, gloves and the men's hairstyles.
PPYMCA stands for Pikes Peak YMCA. The organization was founded in 1844.
Teddy Roosevelt attended the dedication of their new building in Colorado Springs building in 1901 and the organization still exists and is thriving today!
