This is a family photograph - date unknown. The photo measures 7 1/2" by 4 1/2" mounted to a cardboard backing card measuring 8 1/2" by 5 1/4" with the name Bradley Photographers on the back. The photo is of a baseball team with the name "W. K. Cole" on their shirts standing in front of a store which says Cole's Sarsaprilla on the window. Hand-written beneath the photo is "H.K. Holland - Manager" - I do not know which of the men is my relative (manager). Eight of the men are in uniforms with caps (one with bowler hat). Three of the men are well-dressed in suits (two with tophats, one in front with bowler hat), one gentleman is dressed in a non-uniform holding what appears to be a catchers mask (or umpire??). To the far left is a younger black boy with cap holding a baseball bat (I assume being the batboy - his shirt says W.K. Cole's) - H.K. Holland are not the initials of either my grandfather or great-grandfather but is a relative by surname.
