    Default Ladies' Snookball Team Photo 1910

    I have a photo of a ladies' snookball team, probably taken in Heathfield, Sussex or in that area as my great grandmother is in the pic. I wonder if any other members could identify any of the other women or girls? Their ages seem to run from about 12 to late 40's. My great-grandmother, Sarah Ann (Annie) Barden Oliver is third from left in the center row. She was about 43 at the time. The photo was taken in 1910 (inked in on top left).
    Contact me privately if you would like to see the photo (or someone can tell me how to post it here - I have it in jpg format).

    If you have a read of this thread, it will explain how to upload a photograph using Photobucket.

    Hi, thanks for the helpful suggestion. I have managed to add it to PhotoBucket, but if I post the link here, does the actual photo appear or just the link to PhotoBucket?

    To Confused in Canada,
    The actual photo should appear.

    Thanks! I think that snookball may be better known as stoolball. Am not sure where I got the term snookball - can't seem to find any reference to it when I Google.

    Seems the game originated in Sussex.

    (quote=Traditionally it was played by milkmaids who used their milking
    stools for the purpose.)

    Looks like there is an association that maybe worth contacting.

    Perhaps in the UK it would 'commonly' be known as rounders?

    It's actually closer to cricket than rounders and is thought to be a forerunner of cricket.
