OK, I have found out that the photo was by J.J.Pennell and the collection of glass plate negatives is at the University of Kansas, Kenneth Spencer Research Library.

I am chatting with a librarian there right now.

That photo is Fitzgerald's Bar 1941 in NYC. Taken after the Dodgers won the pennant.
Welcome to the Grumble mariosonic21. :D

Wow, did you just know that fact off the top of your head?
Why would it be in the opening of Cheers which is set in Boston if it's a photo of a New York team win?
I guess maybe it's because Sam was a baseball pitcher, and that's an iconic moment of baseball history.
Oh, well. The original post of this thread was over 10 years ago.
I'm guessing the issue has been resolved by now 😂

It's a representation of the end of prohibition. When Castle/Bryant Motion Picture and Design, the geniuses behind the opening credits to Cheers and the opening credits to the 1st season of Growing Pains, found these photos, they're bars and speakeasies from the late 19th, early 20th century, except Woody's pic, which is actually a lumber camp taken in Brill, WI in 1902. The pic after Ted's and Shelley's in the 1st-3rd seasons is actually a barbershop taken in Junction City, KS. Most of these photos from the opening credits you can find in the book called Our Town on the Plains.

They should've used 'Men Only Bar With Latrine Front -1904'.

*the 'latrine front' was really a spittoon, lol.
