Seems a bit puzzling that the 1929-30 women's basketball team is pictured in front of a building yet to be built four years hence in 1934 ...

Title

Women's Basketball, 1930

Description

This image shows the 1929-1930 Women's Basketball team in front of the Women's Gymnasium, built 1934, at Appalachian State Teachers College (1929-1967) in 1930. Women can be seen standing in their uniforms, while two players sit on the steps, one holding a basketball reading, "A.S.T.C. '30." Women had an outside basketball court, as well as a tennis court and croquet ground, as well as use of the Gymnasium, which was eventually turned into the Women's Gymnasium. Games were forbidden during school hours, and matches required faculty consent. This image appears in the 1930 Rhododendron (p. 89).
