Shorpy Saturday – Play Date: 1905

By Jeffrey Buck

After our record-setting temperatures this past Thursday I thought it was only right to find a photograph about being outside and enjoying the weather. I love this shot but I can only assume either the weather was a bit colder or fashion was a bit more layered. Maybe a valued reader knows more about the citizens of 1905 Detroit.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Play Date: 1905“:
