Image was taken from a three part series on New Bern in the Swiss magazine, Die Berner Woche. The series ran weekly from October 28 to November 11, 1939. This image is from the November 4, 1939 issue.

The German caption can be roughly translated as:

Some New Bern City Boys, New Bern-Stadtgiele, in the stands of the stadium follow a baseball match with the greatest tension.
