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.

When Only Real Men Played Football

Back in that day you played both offense and defense. No specialists on special teams, no players who only kicked, quarterbacks who only quarterbacked. If they threw an interception they stayed on the field as maybe a middle line backer and hoped he would have a chance to tackle the guy who intercepted.

Going both ways had an entirely different meaning then.

Fall Friday nights in America

are some of the best times of the year. Nothing brings people and communities together like their high school sports teams.

It's Halftime

and they're getting whipped.
