Grouping of five 1929 photos picturing the funeral of Ruth's first wife Helen, who was killed in a house fire in Watertown, Massachusetts. Though Ruth and his first wife were estranged, he was devastated by the loss.  Each of the five photos measures 8" x 10", and was taken at the funeral and subsequent burial.  The most poignant of the photos is a single image of Ruth, weeping as he walks toward the camera.  Five photos total, guaranteed Type 1.
