below: Is that the 'Chute-the-Chutes' tower along the left border? (the fence appears different here than in the preceding 5 pictures)

#6

below: I believe that might be amusement park 'Swings' in the distance.

#7

ebay

this fence matches the fence in photo #6. (I believe it's higher than the fence in photos #1 thru #5, also it's lighter in color & doesn't have the diagonal supports)
so...this might be a different venue than what appears in #1 thru 5.

e_r, the "half a church" in photo #5 is the German Evangelical Church on the NE corner of 12th and Hope,
adjacent to Fiesta Park, that we've seen before.

Also, good eye to recognize the theater at Chutes Park!

the left field fence:

Chutes Park, the baseball park, was rebuilt on the same footprint and renamed Washington Park during
the winter of 1910-1911. Since your photos are dated 1910-1911, I'm not sure which park's outfield
fence is shown.
