A fine large team photo of an early high school football team. This photo shows the 1900 West Chester High School football team from West Chester, Pennsylvania.
The photo is a gelatin print laid down on a gray mat. It is signed in pencil, but I cannot make the signature out. There is a notation on the back in pencil as well. This photo came from the estate of Paul A Rodebaugh, an important collector of books and ephemera related to Chester and Delaware counties and especially, to the city of West Chester. The note on the back is in Mr Rodebaugh's hand. It is born out by the football in the photo, which has "WCHS '00" painted on it.
Overall size is 14" by 11". Photo is 9.25" by 7.875".
Condition: bumping to the mat corners, otherwise fine.
