The Midway Kids: 1910

The Midway Kids: 1910

I thought this glass negative was a picture of the students of a one-room school, but after a closer look at the babies and other clues, I'm doubtful it is. With the flags and the boys armed with toy guns, this may have been connected with some kind of patriotic celebration, possibly a community picnic. It's from Midway, Kentucky, in 1910, as you can see.
