Taken from the Twelfth Annual Report of the Board of Commissioners of the Central Park, for the Year Ending December 31, 1868. New York, Evening Post Steam Presses, 41 Nassau St., 1869. Page 25, a silver gelatin albumen print of boys playing Base Ball, “Boys’ Play Ground,” 3 ½ in x 3 ½ in. Cut from page 25 of the Annual Report, there is text printed on the back of the page where the photographic paper was mounted. An amazing image from 1868, when Central Park was still newly finished and fast becoming a place where young boys could enjoy this new recreational area of Manhattan, as this early action image shows a boys’ game of little league Base Ball in progress. Fine.
