For those of you who can't wait for the Super Bowl to start, we offer this favorite from our collection: Poe's foot-ball: how to play the most popular amateur game ; containing the latest American Inter-collegiate Association and Rugby rules. It was published in New York in 1891. An interesting nugget from p. 16: Rule 17. -- No one wearing projecting nails or iron plates on his shoes, or any metal substance upon his person, shall be allowed to play in a match. No sticky or greasy substance shall be used on the person of players. Makes you wonder what those early games were like. #flyeaglesfly #superbowlLII

These extraordinary images depict Philadelphia at the zenith of its industrial prosperity. Of particular note are the scores of pictures of children who played on the streets of the ever-growing row-house neighborhoods of the Workshop of the World. Don't miss your last chance to see the show!
