Shorpy Saturday – Lil Swingers: 1905

By Jeffrey Buck

The summer is coming to end sadly. August is fast approaching which means kids will soon be back in school. The photograph today depicts a different time for children. It’s a time when outdoor activities heavily outweighed those done indoors. Choices were easy because objects like Nintendo and the internet didn’t tempt us to miss out on a sunny day. Enjoy a baseball game this weekend or take a walk or lay by the pool. Enjoy the sun!

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Lil Swingers: 1905“:

    Guess they were upset they couldn’t play with their abacuses. Not a smile in the bunch.
