[Broadside]: Help - Police - Murder. Bristol Tramps vs. New Britain Pros... Preliminary: N.B. Girl Pros vs Broad Brook Girls

New Britain, Connecticut: [George] Paris & Holst Ent, 1946. Unbound. Near Fine. Photographically illustrated broadside on thin cardstock. Approximately 14" x 22". Modest age-toning at the extremities, else near fine. While we are unaware of the meaning of the headline "Help - Police - Murder," the poster advertises a basketball game between two fairly prominent semi-pro men's basketball teams. What is curious is that the poster is illustrated only with photographic portraits of six members of the New Britain Girl Pros, who were featured in the preliminary game. Little can be found relating to the women's teams involved other than they were likely member of the Connecticut Girls Basketball League, which we date back to at least 1901.

Cabinet Card of a Woman Boxer

By GILLMORE, Marjorie

Buffalo: Ginther, 1890. Unbound. Near Fine. Collodion print. Images measures 4" x 5.5" and is mounted on a 4.25" x 6.5" card with photographer name and address printed below the image. Fine. Penciled name of "Marjorie Gillmore" on verso in contemporary hand. The image shows a well-dressed and coifed woman sitting in a chair with a punching bag and boxing gloves at her feet. Women's boxing was practiced in England beginning in the early 18th Century, he first advertised American women's boxing match was held in New York in 1876. Women's boxing enjoyed a brief vogue near the turn of the century as some woman's rights supporters encouraged it as exercise. Women's boxing was a display sport at the Olympic Games in St. Louis in 1904 (which was combined with the World's Fair), but it failed to be added to the permanent roster of approved sports. After that it mostly faded from view until its relatively recent revival. It is uncommon to find early images of women with boxing paraphernalia. Undated but presumably someone with better knowledge of women's fashion might be able to make a more informed guess.
