Menlo Park and Atherton residents loved the popular sport of polo, seen here in an undated photo at the Menlo Circus Club. Competition was hot among players, who needed a string of six or more horses to take part. Regular play began in 1915 and continued until the Depression hit in the 1930s; it resumed in 1954, when Atherton resident William Gilmore revived twice-a-week contests at the Circus Club.
