Senate Hopefuls: 1927

Senate Hopefuls: 1927

Washington, D.C., 1927. "Congressional pages -- Senate basketball." Looking forward to Tuesday's big game. Harris & Ewing glass negative. View full size.

They only needed seven men on the team because the game was much slower then. A Jump Ball after each basket and and almost no physical contact with the opposing players.
