or is it 808? I'm never sure. It seems pretty obvious that Bob/808's jersey was hand painted. You can see the paint running from the bottom of the letters. Was this Bob's own private team or was this a high school with few funds in the 1930s? And to get even a little weirder, was his name Bob Kittens or was he playing for a team named the "Kittens"? Just another one of those eternal vernacular photography questions. Who are these people? What are they doing? Where did they come from?

Here's to Bob, or team member 808, of the rough and tumble Kittens basketball team.
