1911 University of West Virginia Football Team Aboard the U.S.S. West Virginia

Amazing silver gelatin mounted photo of this team aboard the United States Navy armored cruiser of the same name. Painted footballs identify the year "1911" and the team "WV" as life preservers identify the ship. They did excursions to Hawaii at that time so this could have been a special tour. Overall 19" x 13". Team is displayed with an abundance of equipment and a Naval Officer.
