Children Playing On A Fence Circa 1914

Young Barbara Douglas (4th from left) and her friends climb a fence about 1914. Look at the size of some of those hair bows. What fun it must have been being a child of privilege living and playing at Brucemore in Cedar Rapids, Iowa during The Douglas Era 1906-1937.
