Belmont's Champs of Yesteryear

It's clear by looking at these historic photos of Belmont, that athletics was as important to the community back then as it is now. Can you name any of these teams/players/locations?

The equipment may have evolved, and facilities may have improved, but much of the sporting world we are witnessing in today's hasn't changed much over the past century.

Take a look at some of Belmont's early sports teams and test your history knowledge by trying to figure out the sports being played, the field or location of the competition, and, if you're really good, perhaps you can even name a few of the athletes.

Thank you to for providing these amazing photos. Take a stab and tell us in the comments what you can about these athletes of yesteryear.

Do you think there may have been an Olympian or two in town?

Is there a way to repost the pictures when they find out who, what, when & where? The one with the tennis players looks like it was part of the Belmont Country Club - circa - ????? - late 20's or early 30's
