002 – 1888 Team Group

I must admit I rather adore Victorian teamgroup photographs.  Find a grand background, slouch around all nonchalant, and take the shot.  Far more enjoyable than rows of players looking straight forward.

 

I’m sure looking at the writing you think I’ve reversed the scan but that is actually how it is.  It’s part of a long card with various magazine sports pictures stuck on it, presumably to be shown through some type of mirrored or reversing projector.  For the record the other images include cricket, women skating on a frozen lake and a ladies hockey match.

    I wish this style of team photo would come back into fashion. It’s much better than the school stylee. I think you are kicking .coms butt with your choice of images.
