Home movie of a Chicago Cubs game in 1938 is astounding

A home video shot at Wrigley Field in the 1930s — and uploaded to YouTube this week — shows the baseball stadium with recently-planted ivy … and full of cigars.

The footage was shot by Jacob Glick, a Ukrainian immigrant born in 1898, who owned cigar shops around the city, including one in the old New Lawrence Hotel at Lawrence and Sheridan, where Glick’s son and daughter were born and raised.
