Taken in Atlantic City as the Pottsville Maroons and Atlantic City Roses battled on the gridiron, this 45" x 11" panoramic depicts the last game the team played before joining the National Football League the following season. Based in a sleepy coal-mining town in Pennsylvania, the Maroons traveled to Atlantic City along with buses filled with their fans to make a statement to NFL president Joe Carr that they had a fan base worthy of NFL membership. Photo appears EX and is in a period frame. The wording on the far right reads: "FANDOM OF POTTSVILLE, PA" AT THE A.C. ROSES - POTTSVILLE MAROONS FOOTBALL GAME - ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. NOVEMBER 9th 1924 - SCORE-POTTSVILLE 22-ATLANTIC CITY 0. There is also a photo credit to Atlantic Foto Service of Atlantic City, NJ.
