This 1891 student photograph of a Princeton football practice was taken with a Kodak box camera. With the camera’s introduction in 1888, student photography became more common, and some Tigers may even have developed their own photos in the John C. Green School of Science. The players out on this field are part of Princeton football history, as the 1891 season still holds the record for the longest streak of games (12) in which the Tigers were unscored upon.
