Description

This is a black and white photograph on the bottom left from page 67 in the scrapbook. This photograph shows a group of young people swimming in what looks like a pond. Several of the swimmers are wearing swim caps. There appears to be farmland in the background and a split rail fence running along the hill through the center of the photograph. The young people are all floating and holding onto something that possibly looks like a large tree branch or wall in the center of the pond. It is reported that this is likely located somewhere in Ashe County.
