Early Game trackers

Before electronic information, before radio we had Play-O-Graph which was an iron, gear driven wonder to masses of baseball fans in the streets during many big game. The image below was taken during game one of the 1911 World Series.  The Playograph was produced and manufactured by the Playograph Company of Stamford, Connecticut, they also made the Gridgraph seen below. There is a great blog post on Uni-Watch about these here
