Image of National League's Chicago Cubs baseball players warming up on the field before a game against the National League's Cincinnati Reds 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. Empty chairs for overflow seating are set up on the field in front of the stands and two men standing in front of them are visible in the foreground. A billboard across the right field wall reads: Baseball Stories by Dryden and Sy in The Tribune This Year. Spectators sitting in bleachers on the rooftops of buildings beyond the right field of the ballpark are visible in the background.
