Description

Wahoo! From the archives at Charlottesville comes the offered 1911 University of Virginia Football team photograph. Measuring nearly 13-3/4 x 9-1/4", this black-and-white picture was crafted by Rufus W. Holsinger Studio. A 1912 fire destroyed several of Holsinger's negatives and what survived was donated to the University in 1978. As notated on the reverse, this crisp portrayal was awarded to player JH Wellford at the close of the 8-2 campaign. Despite moderate staining along with age-induced foxing, this early gridiron artifact displays remarkably well.
