Foto Friday: Summer League Basketball…sort of

This photo is obviously not from Lands’ End, but like our favorite catalog of classic American clothes, it also features fetching summer fashion!  Actually, this photo is from an album of photographs and newspaper clippings covering the act Basketball on Bicycles as performed by The Oxford Trio, which toured in 1914-16.  And it’s included here, because we know that true Villanovans appreciate basketball in any form! By the way, have you been watching our old buddies Josh, Mikal, Ryan, et. al. in the NBA Summer League!? So awesome!!

Anyway… in case your cable is out and you can’t make it to Vegas, you’ll find this item and many dozens more currently on display on the library’s first floor as part of  the Timeless Treasures: Recent Acquisitions in Distinctive Collections exhibit! Curated by Laura Bang, Digital and Special Collections Curatorial Assistant, it’s up for a limited time. But hurry in – just like basketball season, summer flies by!
