Baseball in Blue

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

This cyanotype photograph shows spectators crowding the stands for a baseball game at Nicollet Park. Taken around 1900.

In case you don’t know, this photograph is called a cyanotype where iron salts are used in place of silver, producing the blue color. This process was most often used to make blueprints.
