Babe Ruth Eating a Turkey Leg Surrounded By Children While Sitting on Stairs Inside the New Washington Hotel, Seattle, ca. 1927
George Herman “Babe” Ruth, well-known for being the “the captain of the home run industry” and for his swaggering style, hit his 60th home run of the season on September 30, 1927, for the New York Yankees, setting the record for home runs in a season. Much of the Seattle press gave little notice to the event, although the Seattle Times noted that “the probabilities are great that sixty home runs will stand for many years as a busy season’s work.” Upon Ruth’s retirement in 1935, no one had hit half as many home runs as his record of 714 - a record that stood for almost four decades.
In this ca. 1927 photograph, Ruth is surrounded by young children at the bottom of a staircase and being fed a turkey leg a by a boy. The fair-haired boy standing on the stairs just above the boy with the turkey is Harold Warner. His father was the manager of the New Washington Hotel, the setting of this photograph.
