This is a wonderful photograph of women’s basketball but photographer Loyd Sandgren left no clue as to the identities of the teams, the location or the date of the photograph. The image probably dates from the mid 1940’s to the early1950’s since the pants still have a belt which went out in the early 50’s. I can’t identify the teams, there are no markings on the uniforms and only a small sign on the gym wall marked Taylor. There is a Taylor, Florida in Volusia County but If anyone recognizes the gym or the players please help Vintage Jacksonville fill in the information gap.

    Based on the cheer leaders dresses in the back ground and the building design, I believe the photo was taken in the Lee High School Gym at Riverside probably in the 60s.
    I attended Lee until I graduated in 1951. The cheerleader’s costumes were similar, but the athlete’s gym wear was different.
