Fun Fact

The quality of the photograph and the careful arrangement of the group suggest this may have been taken by a professional photographer.

Description

Colonial life offered amusements. Here, a group enjoying a leisurely afternoon poses in front of a rustic bungalow. The skull with horns inside is a trophy from the hunt. The woman’s laced up vest, along with the name in the title, suggest that this group may contain Austrian, German, or Scandinavian members rather than just the British.
