1906 polo in Helsinki, Finland


From the photo's original finder:
"
I found an old bike polo pic in a book from 1906, Idrotten i Finlad (Sports in Finland) by Ivar Wilskman. The picture shows a game of polo in the Kaisaniemi park in Helsinki (Helsingfors Velocipedklubb)."

I love old photos like this, especially ones featuring bike polo. Those Scandinavians are always ahead of the curve.

From here via here.
