1906 Basketball Teams

Last week’s Throwback Thursday was the Mandolin Club. This week it’s basketball season. How about Rockford High School, Illinois basketball teams in 1906?

Another page or two from my grandmother’s yearbook. No relatives on either team but thought the photos were interesting to see, even if you don’t know the people.

Mr. Paul Lucas was coach of both teams. It states “he has never once faltered in his plan.”

Not sure what they wore to play the game

  1. Great pictures and your timing is excellent with mens and women’s NCAA coming to a close. GO DUKE! 🏀DC

  2. I hope the girls weren’t wearing what they were in picture for the game. It would be hard to dribble!

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
