    This 8 by 10 photo depicts the Championship basketball team of Fort George Wright of 1926.

    FGW is closed now, and this photo presents simpler times. The Great War had ended a few years before, relative peace reigned, and the prosperous 1920s were approaching full steam…..

      Great pix. They do look like they've all got flak Vests on and couldn't possibly get those shorts to go up any higher. Yikes! I get a Wedgie just looking at the pix.

      Ya know---men need the longest shorts possible. Remember the old TV show "The Love Boat" I saw a rerun last night and couldn't stop snickering; the crew and Captain's shorts were near indecent and it wasn't a pretty sight! What we were thinking back when!
      However--the picture is a "collectible" and 100% WINNER!! Cheers!

      Ha! I think I don't have the same taste in uniforms and men features than Sean :-D
      Prefer nowadays basket players body, lol!

      Nice document pic Rniederman!

      I would run fast from the men on the right of the Military man and maybe hold still for the man on the left of him for a few minutes to get a better look. (with the hairy legs.) To tell the truth, this is an extraordinarily spooky looking group. I think Sean was just "kidding around" to make us giggle.--and we both took him seriously Kira.

      All I ever wanted anyway was Rudolph Valentino.

      Thank you all for your loves of this photo, and also for your insightful comments.

      Has anyone thought the guys on the right are WAY to short to play basketball ?
    14. Ted_Straub Ted_Straub, 6 years ago
