Description



A solemn moment in baseball history comes into view, with this Lou Gehrig funeral viewing photograph. The "Iron Horse" made his last earthly stop at The Church of the Divine Fraternity, which is the setting for the depicted scene. Captioned in straight-to-the-point manner as "Gehrig in Death", this 8-1/8 x 11-1/4" photo (GD-VG) sees the legendary Yankees slugger laid out in regal fashion, befitting a monarch of the game. Considerable wear is noted on the perimeter, primarily at the corners, while the main image area shows scattered light crazing. The Type III embedded caption at the bottom of the obverse credits "AP Wire Photo" and the reverse side is stamp dated 6/19/41.
