Baseball 1925 Style

This two page gatefold of local ads celebrated the coming baseball season in Neenah-Menasha in June of 1925.  In conjunction with the Appleton Post-Crescent, a contest was held and these fine merchants were the prize contributors.  Unfortunately, circumstances had conspired against the team and caused it to dissolve.  Yet the contest was honored and prizes awarded. A new team arose from the ashes of the old and soon baseball again was in the swing of things.  (I love how the news article refers to the team as "Menasha-Neenah" as opposed to the usual "Neenah-Menasha.")
