Hirondelles v Lille 1924

Hirondelles v Lille 1924
I believe, again thanks to Google Translate, that this caption says the following: “A Regional Barette Match at Elizabeth Stadium/Femina-Swallows beat Lille Rugby Club by 20 points to 0. We see a Parisian on the offensive that threw the disturbance to the Lille.”

Um, ok, so that last bit doesn’t quite make sense but the jist is that the Lille Rugby Club got stomped this game. I also like the juxtaposition of this photograph to Vallée’s illustration. No roaring fans to be found in the seats and no disrobed lady ruggers on the field.
