Picnic group, Highland Beach, Md / 1931


This photograph titled “Picnic group, Highland Beach, Md / 1931” shows 21 girls from the local YWCA sitting in and on what has been identified as a 1929 Packard Model 633 8-cylinder Rumble Seat Roadster. I assume that the man wearing the dress shirt and tie in the background is the adult chaperone. Notice the variety of hats some of the older girls are wearing - they’re using fashion to distinguish themselves from the younger girls in pigtails and swim caps. (Is that a sombrero on the girl sitting at the back of the car?)
