Skating in skirts? Now that’s talent.

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday pays tribute to the 1912 University of Toronto women’s hockey team with this 105-year-old photo showcasing the outdated garb of early 20th century female athletes.

Taken by photographer William James at an outdoor rink near Victoria College’s Burwash Hall, the photo captures a septet of stick-toting teammates dressed in toques and ankle-length skirts.

#ThrowbackThursday is a weekly feature from Metroland Media Toronto showcasing fascinating photos from this city’s olden days, courtesy of the Toronto Archives.
