On October 1, 1973, Photographer Ross Lewis embarked

 on a 2 1/2-year photographic journey to honor America's greatest Stadium. During Yankee Stadium's poignant dismantlement, its magnificent pulse continued to live inside its stripped skeleton. Three winters and two summers passed. The spirit of the original Yankee Stadium (built in 1922/1923) never disappeared.  In the spring of 1976, The Stadium's joyous rebirth was complete.  More than 10,000 photographs were taken when the project concluded 

on Opening Day, April 15, 1976.
