Vintage Photos



The minute I came across this wonderful vintage photo in an Antique Mall in Littleton, Colorado...



I knew it was coming home with me!
 Team photos sure have changed!



The question is...
What decade is it from?


Any guesses?


Gotta love treasures that fit inside your suitcase!

those are some short shorts! Hmm - early 1930s maybe based on the haircuts?

those look like pf flyers they are wearing. i think pf flyers came out in the mid thirties, so i am going with the late thirties or early forties for this group photo of atheletic studs, hehe.....

I'm going with what the coach is wearing and his outfit looks to be around the forties. Great picture whenever the decade.

Such a fun image. It would be fun to research the team and find out their names to add to the frame. My guess is that it is from the mid to late 30's.

I am not an expert, but I would start with the 1950s to see if there were comparable uniforms and haircuts in high school yearbooks (now on-line). Those satin shorts and Brylcreme do's were popular when I was a Pre-schooler.

Watch out Esther Williams! It looks more like these guys are a team of synchronized swimmers given the pose and the shorts. I'd say 1930's

Great photo!

My guess is between 1950 and 1955.
It would be interesting to know what city that high school was in.
