Welcome, this week Alan offers a stylish and most picture perfect nurse (from Richmond Virginia) on her way to administer, well something...... I will stay slightly afloat with his theme, by bringing as near perfect human nature (as his nurse displays) with honest to goodness children of several ages (even college) most without hats, but all the same
perfect in their own special way!
These two charming young classmates, (she appears like she's waiting for her shot from a nurse) but together they are examining, bees!
These precious little girls aren't wearing hats, and are clearly not of school age, but from the human aspect they are just what I had in mind......These two little girls are from the true everyday life of growing up on the farm in Northome, (a town now of about 200) and even back then not so much going on.....
They were living life so carefree.......and yes, Mommy is watching from the doorway......

I wonder how many children today would be seen wearing any one of these charming hats?
This group of children grouped around their teacher were from Washington D. C. in about 1899.

Meet a few of the fifteen young men that in the summer of 1877 formed the Lurline Rowing Club. This photo was taken on the shores of Lake Calhoun. their club became very prestigious and each member paid ten dollars annual membership fee supplemented by one dollar monthly usage fee.

People of all ages came to enjoy the lake. As a matter of fact, they still do.
|Were these young girls (in the distance) already seeking the attention of these boys who clearly had their minds on fishing?|
