Wrigley Field, 1929

What I want to know is what they're all drinking.

Original caption reads: "Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, waiting to enter the ballpark for a 1929 World Series game between the National League's Chicago Cubs and the American League's Philadelphia Athletics. A crowd is surrounding the men, and a dog is standing in the foreground. Image of a group of men and a boy holding thermoses, sitting on crates outside Wrigley Field is located at 1060 West Addison Street and bounded by West Waveland Avenue, North Seminary Avenue, North Clark Street, and North Sheffield Avenue in the Lake View community area."
