Group of young adults, sitting on the lawn


Sepia-toned image of a group of young people grouped beneath a tree. The four women wear high-necked white blouses tucked into skirts, while all but one of the men wear variations on a suit and tie. One man wears a baseball uniform. Carrie Fitch sent the postcard to Mary Morressey, the older sibling of Sister Mary Clare at St. Mary's Institute. (Sister Mary Clare's name prior to taking her vows was Agnes Morressey.)
