Ballparks & Card Sharks
With so much time at home, we at Photomyne want to help you make the most out of the days to come with a refreshing taste of the good times behind us.
On this day
Few baseball players are more legendary than Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. However, on this day in 1931, both Gehrig and Ruth struck out against 17-year-old girl Jackie Mitchell in an exhibition game in Florida.

Tears for teddy
"This is me on my 2nd birthday. The photo was taken in 1951 by a photographer named Nöll in a studio in Korbach, Germany. It was supposed to be a photo without my teddy. I didn't want that, so that's why I'm crying. So this snapshot was taken unintentionally."

Blast from the past
During WWI and WWII, citizens were encouraged to grow victory gardens to help ease the pressure on the national food supply. These Girl Scouts are doing their part to support the effort (and develop a green thumb).

The way we were
Do you have any 4's?
Before we found our card games in the App Store, you actually had to sit at a table with other people to play. Which game do you think they're playing?
