Out on a Summer Day
In this photograph, there are three people standing in front of a small palm tree on short grass. The man on the left is wearing a suit and tie and a straw hat; he is holding a cane in his right hand and has his left arm around the shoulders of the woman next to him. The woman is standing between the two men, wearing a white jacket, skirt and hat. The two people on the left are middle aged, but the man on the far right is older and has a moustache. He is also wearing a suit, a bowtie, and a straw hat. The men also have flowers pinned to their jackets. On the back of the photograph, there are some handwritten notes that say "Sunday - August 29. 1926, 'Out on a Summer Day!'" and also the names of the people, although they are not very clear; one appears to be "Aunt Linda" (?) and one that says "Papa Bogel."
