Estate Sale | 1895 Myopia Polo Team Photograph

1895 Myopia Polo Team Photograph
Myopia Polo Team 1895: Contemporary copy of the original photograph in its lettered mat.
Hamilton, MA: Ca. 1895

The photo shows the four-man team, mounted and holding their mallets, on the Myopia field, goal just visible at the left. 1 vols. 4.25 x 4.75 inches, mounted. The photograph is in overall fine condition, the backing board chipped and repaired. Bent, American Polo, p. 59 et seq.

Of all the New England polo clubs, notes Bent, the Myopia Club at Hamilton, some 25 miles from Boston, is the best known and has the greatest polo history. Founded as a hunt club in 1882, it added polo in 1888, and in 1895, the year of this picture, played its first senior championship, defeating in the final match the Rockaway team at Brooklyn, NY. The Myopia team was composed of R.L. Agassiz, F.B. Fay, R.G. Shaw 2nd, and A.P. Gardner, all of whom appear in the photograph. Agassiz and Shaw, reports Bent, stood for many years “at or near the top of all the players in this country.”
