Be patient. The next issue of Black Ball: A Negro Leagues Journal (due out any day now) will include a 1938 aerial photograph of the Hill District, showing the locations of Central Amusement Park, Ammon Field, and Greenlee Field. Due to copyright restrictions, I can't share the image online. The "Black Ball" article will also contain several other previously unseen aerial and ground photos of Greenlee Field taken before it was demolished in 1938.

These photographs are superb! Shades of Jacob Riis!
