This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of a football team. The player in the center of the front row is holding a ball which announces that the team is CHS and the year of the photo is 1916. It is likely that the HS part of CHS stands for "high school". The previous owner of this image reported that it was found with a group of many other photographs and that many of it's companions were from either Michigan or North Dakota. The three coaches and their players look very much like the way a high school football team looks today. A fashion update may be necessary but the players intensity and pride is evident in photos from the past and the present. This image is notable for it's excellent clarity. The postcard was printed on AZO paper issued sometime between 1904 and 1918.
