Two children digging on the beach


Two children digging on the beach


Black and white image of two children digging on the beach. Arch Rock is visible in the background. One boy wears knickers and a jacket; the other appears to wear a heavy coat over bare legs. Both are wielding shovels as they dig holes, racing what appears to be an incoming tide. This image was included in a group of images featuring Myrtle and August Blassing, long-time Washington County residents. Many of the photos include two young boys; most likely these are the same two children, enjoying a moment on the beach.
