Thayer Park, circa 1910

Mother and child on the lakeshore; St. James’ in the background; mailed 1910 and definitely of that era as St. James’ enlarged its sanctuary in 1899. Not sure what the ivy-covered humps are (tree stumps?), but this is after Thayer died and before the park belonged to the village, so I would guess they’re a sign of a park in progress.
