Girls of summer #OTD

We’re getting a visit from the girls of summer today. The women’s baseball league at the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company’s South Philadelphia Works in Lester, Pennsylvania played a game on this day, June 10, in 1921. Company photographer Charles Yessel (1877-1953) was there to capture the action. Based on other documents in this collection, it possible that the faceoff was between the Westinghouse Beauties and the Peaches; these two teams faced off that same year on July 23rd at the Wildwood Baseball Park.

This photograph is from the Hagley Library’s From Westinghouse Electric Corporation Steam Division photographs (Accession 1969.170). To view more material from this collection online, including more images of the game, visit its page in our Digital Archive by clicking here.
