Google SketchUp

This is a rough shadow study of the West Side Grounds in Chicago. It's based on a 1917 Sanborn Map. The shadows start at about 9 or 10 in the morning and proceed from there. The date is set for September 26 so as to get some longer shadows.

West Side Grounds

Mike Reischl has told me about his website

It's a site devoted to the previous home of the Chicago Cubs, the West Side Grounds. Some of these photos are from his site. Be sure to check out the statues on top of the ticket office!
