Fenway Park turns 100 years old today when the Red Sox take on the Rays.Over the last century, the ballpark has seen a bunch of minor tweaks and changes.

The stadium that stands at 4 Yawkey Way today is big, shiny, and dotted with ads, but it’s more or less the same park that the 1912 Red Sox played in.

We found incredible vintage photos from the Library of Congress that show you just how little Fenway has changed.

The infield seats look about the same

You can barely tell it's in the middle of a huge city
