Girl’s soccer… circa 1906/07

The Sisters of Hi’iaka: Preserving Hawaii Women’s Soccer History

The discovery and acquisition last month by Stryker-Indigo New York of a photo album containing original 1906 and 1907 sports photographs of Oahu College (current day Punahou School) holds historical significance as they are the oldest known surviving original images of soccer being played in Hawai’i. The images, numbering twenty-four in total, include photographs of the 1907 Oahu College Girl’s soccer team. In all, there are three girl’s team soccer photos, as well as half-a-dozen individual female player portrait photos, in the collection. There is also an amazing image of the Oahu College Boy’s Soccer Team – the 1907 Oahu Island School League Champions.
