Women's Basketball Team at Cornell, 1905 | #tbt


Today’s throwback Thursday photograph comes from the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections at Cornell University. The image shows members of a women’s basketball team at Cornell University taken in 1905. Before women’s basketball became a varsity sport at Cornell in 1971, women played in inter-class competitions and teams wore different color bloomers to tell each other apart.

You can’t deny that uniforms have come a long way since the early 1900s.
