From the Back Cover:

Chicago photojournalist Peter Elliott brings to life the rhythms and character of this revered stadium during 1977ľone of its most celebrated seasons. Elliott's recent discovery of negatives lost for 23 years proudly displays the earthy, forgotten life of old-time Chicago baseball before the advent of corporate sky-boxes and gourmet hot dogs. His refined style demonstrates both the lush eye of youthful talent and the singular drive that brought him back to Comiskey Park over and over again during that strange and captivating time known as "the summer of the Chicago Hit Men." The old park never looked so good. And its reappearance through the artistry of Peter Elliott permits it to live again in the hearts of life-long fans and everyone who loves baseball. An engaging narrative accompanies the photographs and catalogues the history and foibles of park, team, and fans.

About the Author:
