…. these are great photographs taken before 1925… it takes a while to see them all but it is well worth it !! I also saw what I call the forerunner of inline skates and skateboards…. among other unexpected items !! A great post and thanks for taking the time !!

I love the Jai-Alai fronton picture. I guess they used to not have the large nets to keep the ball out of the audience?
