Who: On the left we have the cap with the logo of the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team. On the right is a picture of a player in an old Pittsburgh Pirates Uniforms. So one can assume that this is a major league baseball game between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Photo #2 – Fireworks For Sale

Where: It is hard to see in this cropped picture of the sign that is tucked away behind the counter in the bigger picture. The letters on the sign when read backwards and upside-down spell out Oregon. So it can be a good educated guess that the photo is of a store located in Oregon.

Photo #3 – Barber and Shop

When: We see here in this cropped picture a football schedule poster that is being displayed in the barber shop window. We see that the schedule is for the University of Omaha football team’s 1938 schedule. Based on this, it is safe to assume that this picture takes place in the year 1938.
