Star Bloomer Girls Base Ball Club Group Shot, featuring Maud Nelson and, this being an "integrated" team, three men. The team hailed from Indianapolis and was a big draw at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. There is also a phenomenal hairdo/hat creation going on with may may the team's chaperone, an impressively stern and imposing lady. The mount has fibers winding throughout and appears to have been folded along the left side at some point. The photo has some light scuffing in spots. The reverse features the team's roster, which clearly shows Nelson was the main attraction.
