Treasure Chest Thursday - 1936 Woman's Basketball Team
Treasure Chest Thursday
1936 Woman's Basketball Team
Coon Rapids, Iowa
One more classic photo, including my mother, #8, twice, with many of her closest friends. One caution, for those who click to enlarge the photo: The caption has the names reversed on #5 & #8. Note that #8 is Eileen Kinnick, in both the full group and in the seniors photo. #5 is Erna Lund, who lived just down the road from Eileen in the diaries.
Remember, in these days, in Iowa Girls Basketball, they played three on three, in half courts, not full court. Defense on one end and Offense on the other! The opponent the reverse, obviously, I hope!
Also, not that the gymnasium was just built in 1934. It was just torn down a few weeks ago, in 2012.
Families are Forever! ;-)
