The regular season is ending for high school basketball teams throughout Washington. For many teams, it means no more practices and games. But for others, the playoffs await.

With anticipation building ahead of the postseason, our State Digital Archives has this classic photo of a hoops squad from long ago.

This photo, taken around 1929, shows the Kettle Falls High School boys basketball team. Gotta love the uniforms!

The photo is part of the State Digital Archives’ Crossroads on the Columbia photo collection, which contains more than 500 scanned historic photographs of northeastern Washington taken between 1890 and 1964. Most were taken between 1920 and 1945. They include school pictures, family albums, industrial sites and the waterfall called Kettle Falls.
