Ebbets Field, Brooklyn, 1950

This photo shows the field, stands, and scoreboard of the great Ebbets Field, home of the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1912 through 1957.  Here we can see a few men doing field maintenance.  No baseball game is in progress.  In the background are a number of billboards, which are clearly focused on men's products -- Bulova watches, Van Heusen shirts, Botany ties, GEM razor blades, and Esquire boot polish.  The scoreboard itself if sponsored by Schaefer beer, "the one beer to have when you're having more than one."
