Central High School, Washington, D.C.

In November of 1922, the Girls Rifle Team from Central High in Washington, D.C. won a competition. Here they are, a group of American girls posed on the football field with their rifles and the trophy.

The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference.

  1. 22 cal rolling block training rifles with Williams peep rear sights and M1907 slings?

  2. I'm not sure, Furt, if you enlarge the image, look at the bore on the rifle the girl on the far left is holding. I'd say that's probably .30 caliber.

    .22s is what I would have expected, but unless I can find some more info, it may remain a mystery
