About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Hobey Baker?

Isn't the player second from the left the great Hobey Baker? He is probably the most famous amateur player of his time and had his life not been cut short during WWI there may have been a greater legacy left behind. The Hobey Baker Award keeps his name and legend alive.

No helmets, few pads and they all seemed to have most of their teeth. Was hockey that much genteel back then?


That guy in the middle is awesome. I love the interesting faces that always pop up in these old photos.


Tough looking dudes. Very cool team logo.
