WHISKERS! WHISKERS! THE HOUSE OF DAVID BASEBALL TEAM… THE BEARDED BEAUTIES of FAME! “the GREATEST show on Dirt”
SHORPY: The bearded, celibate, vegetarian Isrealite House of David, as reorganized by Mary Purnell (A.K.A – Mary’s City of David – Benton Harbor, Mich.), while famous for their amusement park, bands, and baseball team, also fielded a basketball team that played the Harlem Globetrotters and toured Europe in the 1930s, 40s and 50s
I have posted the above photo (via AWESOME Shorpy) a few times on Sissydude. I think it’s SUPER HOT! Well, I just discovered that there was a House Of David Baseball Team as well (and a Blues band). Unlike the basketball team, the baseball team is well documented. So here are some great photos and videos… ENJOY!!!
