OK, it is summer time, so that means vacation! So this week will be vacation week. We will be looking at how people have spent their leisure time over the last 100 years. This picture from 1909 shows a woman enjoying some time in a canoe taking pictures.

I hope you will share some of your more memorable vacation moments this week.


  1. I will bet there was another picture, taken with a 4x5 press camera, of a guy with a view camera on shore, taking a picture.

  2. Love the outfit! That hat did keep the sun off of her face, at any rate, but I imagine her gloves are on the seat beside her.

  3. I don't usually go anywhere on a vacation. My home is my daily refuge. Hope you enjoy your time away. Stay safe.

  4. When I entered my comment Mr. PJM, and hit preview to see what it would look like , it vanished.
    Guess it wasn't meant to be seen.

  5. This always feels like vacation time to me. My dad worked for Maytag, back in the day, and they would shut the entire plant down for two weeks, for maintenance and such. Everyone left town for vacation at the same time. It was a ritual, and lots of fun.
