1899: Water Polo match at Tunbridge Wells, UK

Lining up before the start of a Water Polo match of "Cygnus Swimming Club of Tunbridge Wells", England in 1899.
"Seven minutes each way, or fourteen minutes with three minutes interval at half-time, is the total duration of a Water Polo match. Short though though the allotted time may seem the excitement is fast and furious and so is swimming".
Source: Extract from the "Strand Magazine" September 1899.
