This is a map of the Monroe Park area. It shows the theater in the middle of the picture near Bay Shell Road. The teardrop shaped loop below the base ball diamond is the trolley car track. There is a similar looking trolley car loop in the upper left corner in Arlington Park. This would mean that the pier jutting out into the river adjacent to the park is Arlington Pier (home to the Mobile Yacht Club, and later the USCG), which can be seen in the illustrated view closest to the viewer. Maps and diagrams of this park are often conflicting, leading me to believe that there were many changes over the years.

A couple of other notes: the street labeled Hurtell above is now called Duvall (re-routed some streets), and the street labeled Washington is now called South Broad. The place where the railroad and Broad cross is a railroad trestle familiar to locals. Babe Ruth played a practice game at the ball field in 1922.
