Veterans banquet

Description

Large black and white image mounted on heavy card stock of a group of people. Central in the picture is a large table set for dinner and with a good deal of food, and with people seated all along each side. A crowd of people, men, women, and children including babies, are gathered in the background of the photograph and to the sides of the table. The seating pattern at the table alternates men and women, no children, and most of the seated men wear uniforms with various cavalry and kepi styled hats. The women's hats vary widely, from straw sailor hats to small bonnets to wide-brimmed hats with large numbers of flowers on them. The trees in the background are lush and full.
