Our May Day Picnic

Today is May Day, and 131 years ago in 1886, this is what one celebratory picnic by a group of elderly friends looked like.

This is a rather unique and artistic way of photographing such an event; typically a photographer of that era, taking a group photo, would have everyone stand close together. This is more of what in modern times is known as the "rock album" pose.
