1911 Girls BasketballTeam

Taken in Lincoln/Lancaster, Nebraska in .

Check out these cumbersome uniforms! This is the 1911 Lincoln High School girls basketball team from Lincoln, Nebraska. Seated, is the team captain, Elsie May VALLIS, daughter of Louisa Ann (Palmer) and John Vallis. Although conservative today, the bloomered uniforms were risque in 1911, restricting male spectators.

Mystery: Elsie May VALLIS, seated, is the team captain. Who are the other young ladies on this 1911 girls basketball team?
