Photo of the Week: Playoffs!

Since everyone seems focused on a certain local team, here are some nearly 100-year-old glass plate negatives depicting another local team, shot by "cowboy photographer" Erwin E. Smith (1886-1947). All three images show the Bonham Blues baseball team in action, ca. 1911-1915.
