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) from 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, but not limited to, "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.

Game Faces On

These guys have their game faces on, and are playing hard. A great picture. Did the guy without a helmet have it stripped off in play or was this really allowed?

Action shot

This is the earliest action shot I've seen using the technology of the day. About ten years earlier the ball carrier would have been a blur on the plate.

[Not so. See this photo from 1912. - tterrace]

And the crowd went wild.

Anybody know which team is which?

Red Dog

Looks as if the defender has made a nifty move--he "shot the gap" between two offensive linemen and is making a great stop. Or could be the offensive player on his back below the runner has just been run over and knocked on his keester. Either way, great play and great sports shot for its day.

(Gotta love the guy with no helmet.)
