I wonder if any of those guys made it to the ripe old age of 25?

Somewhere in this world is an incredible Movie-Tone (type) Newsreel film showing actual playing of auto-polo. It was an old film when I saw it at a theater over forty years ago at a place that showed a lot of historic films and movies. I was there to see a silent movie, they also showed a lot of Newsreels. Past efforts to find it online found maybe a half a minute of what was probably a couple minutes of film on U-Tube and other sites. It just wasn't nearly enough. What I saw looked to have been filmed earlier, but was narrated in the style of the '30s and '40s.
Every time I see photos like these, I wish I could direct others to see what I have seen, but so far, I haven't found it.
Thank you Jay for sharing these photos!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I love the image out there of a group using Locomobiles, circa ~1902. Horseless carriages were barely on the road and already people were smashing them up for fun.
