For many in this town, fall means Chelsea Football!  While you’re waiting for the Bulldog’s next game, jump back to the 1950s and take a look at these football pictures taken by Ralph Guenther, local photographer. 


This photo of Stan Knickerbocker was taken sometime in the 1950s.


Players and coaches study the plays (or, I suspect, pretend to for the photo). We don’t know the names of the people, or the exact date, but this photograph was taken sometime in the 1950s.


This picture and the two that follow it were taken on March 10 1959 for the Chelsea High School yearbook. I doubt they were playing football games in March, so it’s likely that these players suited up just for the camera.


Here’s the 1959 football team. This photo was also taken on March 10, 1959 for the CHS yearbook.
