Windsor High School’s 1895 Football Team

Sporting the latest uniforms of that period including vests and mustaches, this photo of Windsor High School's first rugby football team was taken in Manchester on November 28, 1895, just before the game with Manchester. Windsor’s town clerk in 1945, Leslie H. Hayes, had the picture hanging on the wall of his office in town hall and lent it to The News-Weekly for publication.

According to Harry B. Williams of Stony Hill, a member of the team, the picture includes: from left to right in the front row – Ned Hollister, Williams, Edward Jarvis, Arthur Bailey (manager), Walter Webb, Charles Sipple, and George Albie; back row – Robert Williams, William Tritz, George White, August Pouleur, Louis Rivers, and Edward Neuhaus. Not present in the picture but on the team were: Phillip Remington, L. Fletcher, and Robert Barnes.
