Description Shibe Park, state of the art (for its time) baseball stadium, opened in Philadelphia in 1909. It was designed by owner of the Philadelphia Athletics Ben Shibe, and manager Connie Mack. Mack managed the A's for 50 years, and the stadium was renamed for him in 1953. Built entirely of steel and concrete, at a cost of $300,000, it lasted until 1971 when it was destroyed by fire.For decades the A's were the dominant Philadelphia team, though they moved to Kansas City in 1955, and later to Oakland. The Philadelphia Phillies, the poor relation, shared Shibe Park starting in 1938, with the football Philadelphia Eagles playing there from 1940 to 1958.The Phillies bought the stadium, which had been remodeled several times, in 1955. They continued playing there until 1970.Photograph by the Bain News Service 1909.
Ken Sehres, Philadelphia, PA Member Since April 2011 Artist Statement Hi from historic Philadelphia, which is, at once, beautiful, timeless, busy, cultural, and sometimes gritty--in short it is a real city.. I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and after quite a few years have returned to the city of my heart. I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, and have lived in Manhattan and Tampa.
I am offering historically researched images, some original art (forthcoming), and original photographs (mine). The images are from my own collections, from the internet, and paintings by my mother (soon to come). Many will be of historic or nostalgic interest. Some will have been digitally enhanced. Credit to the artist will be given wherever possible.
At Imagekind I have the opportunity to offer a large assortment of prints, many fine papers, creative matting, and framing to compliment the prints.
Please take a look at my galleries, and check out my store at homegear.imagekind.com/store. I will be adding images on a regular basis.
