Italian games in 1903 & 1905 newspapers

Post by joetucciarone »

Earlier this year rp76226 started the topic, “What did our Italian Ancestors do for Fun” in the Italian Genealogy forum. I thought I’d continue the topic here with photographs from vintage editions of the New York Tribune. The October 22, 1905 issue featured a picture of New York Italians playing a cheese-rolling game:

The winner of the contest won (and ate) the cheese. The December 13, 1903 edition included two photographs of New York Italians playing Palle, and a picture of two men playing Mora; what we called “fling-flang-flu”:
