Peering Into the Past

(Above) How beautiful is this? A beach resort or small community, c. 1910. Check out the beautiful arrangements of sea shells or stones. Did each family make their own yard art? Lovely. Click on image for larger view.

Don't know about the boy's camp or dog show, but the rest of them are NYC. Brighton Beach and Rockaway are on the ocean side of Brooklyn and that shot of the Tombs is amazing. Still there, different surroundings now.
