Today’s Top 5

Gillette Commercial

These players could be an ad for smooth shaving Gillette razors.

When the helmets were leather

...and the men were steel.

A few of these guys can hardly keep from snickering at the camera that has been placed on the ground, which was probably a very innovative idea back then!

Facemask Free

Just think how much we would have missed if these handsome young men had been wearing face masks?

Football in 1943

Rarely does one see images from Black college football and especially from in the 1940s. Parks' 4x5 negative does a great job in capturing detail.
