I agree that is one awesome photo! Talk about a slice of history. It's amazing to see them all dressed in their best clothes and with such beautiful smiles.

That is adorable! I think the girl in front has a crush on the boy to her right.

I want to know more about the book!
With a title like that, it's got to be good....

Michael said...

furth, it's a kid's book from the 30s, Gumpy is a dog. The secondary title is "The Story of a Little Sled Dog With a Big Heart."

I think that's Gumpy there, on the right on the end! He's my FAVORITE!

I feel for the darling little girl with the braces on her legs (POLIO). Although she seems to be enjoying herself like the other kids are, I wonder if she would have preferred to hide her legs somehow.
In my era (the 1950's) the little girl in our class who had a brace on one leg was allowed to wear pants while it was strictly dresses for the rest of us.
