Real Photo Postcard of the 1906-1907 Champion Basketball Team of Brooks High School Basket Ball Team at Brooks, Maine
Real Photo Postcard of the 1906-1907 champion basketball team of Brooks High School at Brooks, Maine. The postcard was never addressed or mailed.
The photograph shows 5 team members and their coach or manager, all sadly unidentified, as well as the championship ball.
Checking the 1900 Federal Census of Brooks, Maine, for a male born in the relevant time frame brings up too many possibilities for me to make a guess as to any of the team members.
I'm hoping that a reader or readers with relatives from that era from Brooks, Maine, or area towns, will recognize one or more of the people in the photograph from family photos or family resemblance and will leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
