I just love the perspective on this photo. It seems like it must have been very carefully orchestrated with the few people in the back standing up and those in the front at a curve to make some look closer and others farther away. The amount of people looking away from the camera is especially charming to me and the little girl in front is darling.
Unfortunately, the image is very faded and this is about as clear as I could make it. I wish i could tell what they were sitting on but, unfortunately, even at very high contrast it's pretty much unrecognizable. There isn't any information on the back either, but I'd guess that it was taken in the early 1900's, maybe somewhere around 1910, give or take a few years.
