The Young, Old Professor

I love old baseball photographs.  Here's one I came across yesterday.  It's the "Old Professor", Casey Stengel.  Of course he's not old here.  It's 1914 or 1915 and he was in his mid twenties playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.  Dig the shades!

Casey is standing in front of the right field wall at Ebbets Field.  The two signs to his left are for Fatima Cigarettes (top) and Perfection Scotch Whiskey (bottom).
