Of all the puzzle images in our collection, this is (or was) the most "puzzling". Cut 1910 c, by Mary Underwood, Boston, MA, this extraordinary scene was the focus of a 20 minute segment on the PBS show, “History Detectives” shown on national TV in July 2003. Note such details as stands filled with spectators (upper left) and the cleats on the heal of the woman running with the ball. Artist is W. Granville Smith; art date on puzzle: 1894. Fact of fancy? Did women actually play some form of organized rugby or football back in the 1890's ? “History Detectives” answered this question in the negative and found that the picture appeared as the centerfold in the fall 1894 football issue of Truth magazine, a popular magazine in the 1890's designed to “titillate” men much like Esquire and Playboy in later years.The picture’s original caption which Ms. Underwood cut off in making the puzzle, read, “Football is such good form. You know!”, a double entendre drawing attention to the risqué poses (in those times) showing legs, knees and other curves of the female form. Plywood, non-interlocking, cut along color lines in the tradition of the 1909 era.
