About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

James H. Lemon

Jimmy ultimately owned the Washington Senators through much of the 60's. He sold the team shortly before the they left DC for Texas.

Clean & Speedy

Washington Post, Jan 7, 1920.

Lemon Helps Central Beat Baltimore Poly.

Jimmy Lemon, Central's left forward, by scoring seven baskets from scrimmage and two from free passes, paved the way for Central to defeat the Baltimore Poly quintet at Baltimore yesterday, 24 to 22. The game was clean and speedy. Superior floor work helped Central greatly.

Winchester played well for Poly, his accurate shooting keeping his mates in the running.

Lemon's Look

Starting out the 1921 basketball season, our uniforms are featuring the new and trendy belted jodhpur cutoffs worn with well-used Chuck Taylor hightops, long socks and functional knee pads. Jimmy Lemon assures us that this latest fashion in court wear is much more comfortable than it appears. Go Central!
