Description
 
Two (2) photographs taken of a group of young people while sitting on a porch. It appears as though they are on a holiday or picnic, as several people are holding lawn tennis rackets. The first photo shows a group of thirteen (13) people, some appearing quite affectionate or familiar towards their partner. The second photograph depicts only six (6) rather dejected looking members of the group. Each is wearing or holding a sign that reads “LEFT”, while the remaining spaces have signs marked “TAKEN”. Presumably there was some courting going on between the times of the two photographs, as the remaining individuals were all that were “left”. A sign in front of second photograph reads 1888. Reverse of one photograph marked Benedict – Litchfield, Conn. Photos measure 4 3/8” x 7 3/8” on slightly larger mounts. . edge wear on mounts
