Photo Of The Day: Hanlan's Point Stadium Remixed With Modern Day Toronto's Skyline Photo By Aladone
Today's Photo Of The Day is a remix of two photos, one past and one a recent one. Created by forum member Aladone, the remix shows the views fans at the old Hanlan's Point Stadium would have had if the stadium was still around today.
Built in 1897, Maple Leaf Park was the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball club. The stadium lasted until 1927. Today the site is occupied by the Island Airport. One interesting tidbit about the stadium. On September 5, 1914 Babe Ruth's hit his first professional home run here. He certainly would be shocked to see the view from the home plate today.
