[Campers in a Field]

[Campers in a Field]

Date: c. 1900
Creator: unknown
Description: This photograph shows a very large group of people standing together in a line, with two smaller groups sitting on the ground in front of them. The closest group appears to be four men in dark suits. They are too far away to make out much detail, but several of the people seem to be holding up dark-colored umbrellas. The foreground shows that the area is a large open field covered in short grass and brush. In the background, there are trees, white tents, and various other items as well as mountains behind them. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads, "All campers on the ground, about 1900."
