    1896 Harvard Football Team Imperial Cabinet Photograph. According to our research, the 1896 Harvard football team was a superior squad, which featured collegiate All-Americans Norman Cabot, Percy Haughton, N. Shaw, Edgar Wrightington and Dunlop. This enormous original image from that memorable squad is one of probably a only handful in existence. Measuring at 13x16" on its original 14.5x18.5" cardboard backing ("Elmer Chickering - Boston" stamp on verso), this piece exhibits moderate wear and aging. Led by head coach Bert Waters, the 1896 squad was one of the more notable Harvard groups of the late 1800's.
