Snapshot photograph emanating from Walter Johnson's estate. We believe this image was captured on August 2, 1927 when the Washington Senators honored their star with "Walter Johnson Day" at Griffith Stadium, marking the 20th Anniversary of Walter Johnson's very first game with the club. 

Photo measures 2.5" x 4.25" and does suffer from some focus and contrast issues, especially towards the left side. Verso contains paper remnants that are likey the result of being removed from a scrapbook. Rubber-stamped numbers and handwritten notations also appear.
