Unidentified Pekin Football Team
Click on thumbnails for a larger image

The above 1919 photo was found in the Piro home at 910 Caroline Street, Pekin, IL.  There is no identification except the writing on the football which reads: "PEKIN-21 PEORIA -0 1919"

I assume the dog is the mascot.

[Host's note: If you can identify anyone on this team, please E-mail me by clicking here.

Thanks, Bill]
