First of all, below are photographs from a 1909 University of Arizona photo album that I own. Most noteworthy, these photographs are an early University of Arizona football team. Alternatively, to view an even earlier U of A Football photo, please click HERE!
Interestingly, the University of Arizona asks my permission to publish these images for temporary installation. Notably, this installation is on display at the U of A Athletic Department.
Finally, please examine the uniforms, face masks, and helmets. In effect, I cannot believe my eyes when I see the face masks. Alternately, I think I am looking at Halloween photos! In general, the photograph “Somebody Fumbled” shows these disturbing and scary face masks. Notably, at the end of the presentation is an original advertisement which shows a player’s protective face mask. *You have the ability to right click your computer mouse [three times] on each photograph for an expansive view.
