Real photo postcard of the University of Illinois’ soccer team, 1910. 
Homer Dahringer is seen smiling in the back row, third from left. 
He sent the postcard to his sister Edna who was living in Los Angeles 
at the time. He wrote: “This is the new game I am playing now. 
We played against St. Louis and lost 5-0. Then we played Chicago 
at Chicago and won 3-0. Today we played Chicago down here 
and won 6-1. This was our last game this year. I am going home 
for Thanksgiving soon. 
Wish you were going to there too.” 
Signed, Homer “Darrie” [his nickname].
