Elevated view of spectators sitting in the stands for the World Series game between the National League's Chicago Cubs and the American League's Detroit Tigers played at West Side Grounds, which was located between West Polk Street, South Wolcott Avenue (formerly Lincoln Street), West Taylor Street, and South Wood Street, in the Near West Side community area of Chicago, Illinois. Uniformed officials, possibly policemen, are standing near the edge of the bleachers on the field and batters are standing on the field in the foul zone around home plate. A catcher and a player swinging at home plate are visible to the far right of the image.
