Polo trendsetters

MONONGAHELA, Pa. – Designers today for Abercrombie & Fitch of New York have nothing on those who came up with these uniforms worn by the Monongahela Roller Polo Team of 1907 in southwestern Pennsylvania. 

Well that's the opinion of a volunteer at the Monongahela Area Historical Society, which houses this photo in its rare archives.

Meanwhile, take a look at an old photograph of the packet boat, "Columbia" docked along the Monongahela River in North Charleroi, Pa., on one of its runs between Pittsburgh and Morgantown, W. Va.

These photos are part of the William Playford Taylor collection at the historical society. Click here to read a story about Taylor.
