THE SEASON OF FOOT BALL
This wonderful 19th century woodcut print depicts a spirited game of football on the “racetrack” at Tuxedo Park on a fine autumn afternoon. It chronicles an actual game: The residents of Tuxedo were fortunate on Saturday, October 11th.  in seeing one of the best games of football thus far this season. The contesting elevens were from Princeton and the Orange Athletic Club, and the struggle lasted from three o’clock in the afternoon until nearly five, without either side being able to gain a point. For anyone interested in the history of Tuxedo Park and Orange County, New York, this print will make a valuable addition to their collection.
