Works Progress Administration, Ohio Guide Photographs
Description: This photograph, which shows an an exterior view of Crosley Field in Cincinnati, Ohio, was taken April 15, 1941. Crosley Field was the home of Cincinnati Reds from 1912 to June 24, 1970. In this photograph, people are standing in line, presumably to buy tickets for a Red game. A sign on the side of the stadium reads: "Crosley Field / Cincinnati Reds / World Champions." Before 1912, the Cincinnati Reds had played in various ballparks. When the new stadium opened in 1912, it was named Redland Field; in 1934 it was renamed Crosley Field in honor of Powel Crosley, who purchased the team and the ballpark in 1934. View on Ohio Memory.
