Picnic

Picnic 1a

A picnic, probably at Spafford Landing/Randall’s Point, in June of 1910 or ’11, with this note on the verso: “Clockwise: Chet, Miss Brooks, Rene, Celia, Jennie, Helen, Ned, Ethel, John, ? , Stuart, Arthur”

Picnic 2a

“Clockwise: John, Bob, Stuart, Arthur, Chet, Ned, Ethel, Miss B., Jennie, Helen, Celia, Rene”

I wonder if “Miss Brooks” was the chaperon, and I marvel at men, especially Arthur, who wore a coat and tie on a picnic in June. My thanks to Charles Jermy for sharing these wonderful images.
