A Peek Into History?

The Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear posted this very intriguing photo on Instagram:

Positively giddy with anticipation.

Looking at the 1936 schedule, April 12th was the American Association's opening day. The Brewers were on the road in Louisville, Kentucky to play the Colonels. The AA was experimenting with opening the season on a Sunday, which was a success in Kentucky at least as 10,550 baseball bugs turned out to see the Colonels whallop the Brewers, 6-1.

Schuster's was a Milwaukee department store chain. Did some Milwaukee fan travel to Kentucky with a camera?

I'm told that the Chudnow Museum has three small rolls of film, maybe fifteen minutes in total. The film has yet to be digitized, but we may see it at an upcoming event. The prospect of watching part of a Brewer game is mouth-watering, even a loss.

More details as I get them, but for now we can enjoy knowing that our Brews will come alive soon!
