At the time of posting it wasn't clear to me when that photo was taken. I went off sleuthing for a bit and found the answer on the Caltech Archives site.
Before I got there I did find some other photos of the team through the ages. I thought it might be fun to look at them one decade at a time.
From the Caltech Campus Pubs site, I was able to download and search the yearbooks.
Not all years are represented, but here's what I could find of the varsity team for the Roaring Twenties. Interesting to see the change in uniforms.
|1921 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1922 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1923 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1924 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1925 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1927 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1928 Caltech Varsity Team|
|1929 Caltech Varsity Team|
And now for some individual players.
Paul Lukas, of Uni-Watch.com has a great story (and wonderful photos) of the 1956 Portland Beavers uniforms. I'm wondering if Caltech had the first beaver on a jersey.
Just so the Freshman teams don't feel neglected with straight hand-me-downs, here's a look at the Frosh Squads of the Twenties. Looking at their faces, I don't think that it was Roaring.

|1923 Freshman Team|

|1927 Freshman Team|
|1928 Freshman Team|
In the coming weeks I'll move ahead in time. Eventually, I'll look back at the teams of the teens.
