This great postcard view of the Hood River High School girls’ basketball team is one of several in our collection of Ruth (Hanna) Barnett material donated by her granddaughter.  I’m not sure of the exact year, but it would have been shortly after the new four year high school was built on May Street.  I believe Ruth Hanna was born in 1892, though some sources say 1895.  We’ll have to check the early yearbooks from the 1907-1909 date range to find the year for this image.

We reviewed a list of biographies of Dr. Ruth Barnett in this post.

I sure hope they didn’t play basketball with those bows in their hair.
