There are about 25 photographs of a family vacation to Florida, probably in the Jupiter-Palm Beach area as one of the photos includes what appears to be the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.
Other photos show swimming, bicycling, sailing, and strolling along the beach.
One photo is of two young African-American boys.
Four photos show lots of men and women in athletic wear: white bloomers and blouses for the women and white shirts (with black bow ties), white pants, and white hats for the men. Two are posed group photos, one show a very large group performing mass calisthenics, and one shows a man using the parallel bars.
Three photos show young women in white riding bloomers carrying crops, and three photos show a young man in costume as an obese priest.
The remainder of the photos show typical family scenes. Very good. Item #008656
