description:

Image shows the I.U. baseball team at the train station just west of the downtown square in Bloomington. The buildings in the background are buildings on the north side of Kirkwood Avenue's 200 block. The building behind the two standing men at the extreme left is the old HOOSIER RESTAURANT at 220 West Kirkwood (Frank W. Lamkins was the proprietor). The second floor of the building behind William Lowe Bryan contains furnished rooms for rent (Mrs. Belle Flick was the proprietor).

Restaurants and bars like The Irish Lion, The Alley Bar, and The Crazy Horse occupy some of these buildings today (2013).

While in Japan, the baseball team was entertained by IU alumni. See pages 5 and 6 of the July 28, 1922 edition of The Indiana Alumnus.
