I Wonder...

Where they are now and what sort of stories each one could tell.

I feel old.

In my youth, I turned the crank on an ice-cream maker exactly like that one, and I do mean exactly.

I hope

they get to lick the dasher.

Snappy Dresser

I would guess that the young man in the suit is the son of one of the ministers or deacons that are going to eat that ice cream. Black church affairs are usually pretty formal events.

Great picture

What a great picture of kids having fun and doing a good deed. One interesting detail is the neat way that "North Carolina" is stamped on the license plates, with the "a" nested inside the "C".

Snappy Dresser

That one chap on the left seems a little overdressed for this scene.
