Amaizo Company Picnic 1939 More great picnic footage…baseball games on the picnic grounds right outside at Daly Hall with the WORLD FAMOUS Walter Mays Amaizo Band!
Strike at Amaizo in 1948, right at the front gate! People are getting up off their seats to come see the hubbub in front of Amaizo. Then see some Roby guys playing ball outside a Tavern right at the corner near Amaizo. Fun little guy stumbling out of the tavern, too. What a ham!
Watch as the old 1930s racecars zoom around Roby Racetrack, with Amaizo right in the background! This was before the track was “relocated” to Calumet Avenue, as “New Hammond Racetrack”. Don’t get dizzy as the camera tries to keep up with the cars on the turn! Have fun, Race Fans!
