Scope and content:

This series of color photographs comes from Jim Dow's travels from the 1980s to 2019 to sports stadiums and minor-league ballfields in the United States, Argentina, England, Mexico, Portugal, Scotland, and Uruguay. The images chiefly focus on details such as advertising signs, scoreboards, souvenir stands, locker rooms, murals, and other design elements. In contrast to the larger stadium panoramas composed of multiple images, these are single-frame images.

Original titles and negative identifiers were created by the photographer.
