Oversized (11" x 14") silver gelatin vintage football photo showing Cornell in action (forward pass is being thrown by Cornell) versus Harvard. Our best estimate for the date of this action is 1913 (Harvard played Dartmouth in 1910 and 1913) as few other photos that originated from this find can be dated to 1912. The photo is mounted to a cabinet style piece of cardboard that measures 14" x 18". The captioning and credit written on the board likely make this an early file photo for use in newspapers. The caption reads Harvard Cornell; Harvard's Splendid Forward Pass". On the lower left corner "Small" (possibly photographer's name) and "Globe" (possibly Boston Globe) are written. The rarity of forward passes during games in this era is supported by the emphasis placed upon Cornell's pass. The ball has been captured in mid air by the photographer and has been highlighted in white. This is significant early photograph worthy of a position in an advanced vintage football collection.
