Now that's a good local auction!

This was one part of a lucky find. A large group of publications, baseball cards, baseball programs, etc. were found in an old garage on a property in a less than safe city neighborhood. Apparently the stuff survived in the garage for decades until being recently found.

Default Wesleyan Academy items

Killer lot Bruce! I love those old graduation images that tell a story! Your's is quite unique!
I have an '88 Harvard graduation cabinet that is similar with guys in their baseball uniforms, track uniforms, football uniforms, rowing uniforms etc. I also have similar '95 Lafayette graduation cabinet. That was one year before they won the football National Championship. You can see the college pride in their smiles.
Those old cabinets are like a where's Waldo image. You could stare at them for hours!
Congrats Bruce!

The second is a cabinet photo in front of the residential hall with all the students and staff. There are at least 4 players in uniform along with some others with bats. The penny farthing bicycles and numerous tennis racquets are also nice.
Happy to receive any info about the Academy or the images.
Wesleyan Academy was apparently the first coed residential academy and Rich Hall was built in 1868 to accommodate all the students.

Excellent, Bob...

Can't decide which piece I like more. Both are spectacular!

Were those both in Hake's?
