There's a whole subsector of photo collecting for "with kids" images. This trend likely began with Babe Ruth, who had millions of young admirers and would visit them in hospitals and orphanages. But myriad other ballplayers have been pictured with young fans and autograph seekers. Here we see the Big Train "Showing Boys Fine Points of Game" (as notated in pencil on the reverse). The 8x10 photo appears to be Type I and bears one edge tear and one clipped corner.
