Dave Johns commented via Facebook: “Love all the old cars lined up. Huntsville had a very competitive team back when.”
He also wrote: “The ball park was part of Memorial Park in the 1920’s- 30’s. Some of this area was used up in 1930 with the Arena being built. The Kellocks, (Kellock’s Greenhouse), were on the team with George Kellock a manager and Jim Kellock being one the best players.”
The field was indeed in the location of the arena, Dave. Here’s what we know about this photo:
