You may be able to identify some of these women by contacting Harvey Clough a 1970 graduate of UCAHS. There was a n old 1923 women's basketball trophy in theschool trophy case back in 1970 which I found in the back of the library, cleaned up and and placed on display. It had the members of the team listed on it and I believe Harvey's grandmother was on that team.
Regardless, this photo should be in the Union City Library.

One of those girls was my aunt - Margaret Thomas. Born Oct, 1915 in Pittsburgh, Pa. She was the daughter of Harry A. and Sydney Spargo Thomas. She is now deceased.
