The offered original photograph hails from the archives of industry trailblazer George Grantham Bain. Measuring approximately 6x4 (Bain's photos had unpredictable dimensions), this particular image depicts Brooklyn Dodgers pioneers Charles Ebbets, Wilbert Robinson and Stephen and Edward McKeever in a group handshake. Each is identified near his likeness, as Bain's custom was to etch the names on the original negative. On the reverse, a BAIN NEWS SERVICE stamping is accompanied by an addition stamping that dates the item to Oct. 6, 1916. The bulk of existing Bain photos date to the 1910s as a 1908 fire destroyed his entire inventory. This one grades (EX/MT).
