    I really enjoy history, and I find this kind of stuff to be quite fascinating!



    Here's another video from 1928-1930:

    Probably Opening Day, 1931.

    Neither Sox nor Yanks won the American League Pennant that year. Philadelphia A's won in a cake walk.

    Really cool video. Thank you, Jade Falcon.

    And thank you for the info. I just find it really cool that things were so.....normal.....back then. People smoking in the stands, Babe Ruth just hanging out, etc etc. Really cool stuff.



    I would like to think, that if you took the average college-educated snowflake Millennial SJW nutbag back in time to a NYC slum in the 1920s-1930s, they would have a FAR greater appreciation for how good things are today.

    And the best part about it? NO INTERNET! :dancingbanana:

    1934 Chicago during the Great Depression. Including Socialist and Union marches.



    Pretty sure that was Al Capone, or some other gangster, coming out of the courthouse at the beginning of the clip, but I can't tell for certain.
