Picnicking was a popular activity in the early 20th century. As America became more industrialized and urban, outdoor recreation became more popular. The Fresh Air movement, which sent city children to spend a week in the country, the Boy Scouts, and other organized camps grew rapidly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Outdoor life was considered healthy and invigorating. Note that the clothing worn by both the men and women is quite formal, suits, long skirts, blouses and hats. Scatterday's orchard was located across from Wilson Drive (965 High St.). The man in the foreground is Harry Scatterday with son, Leonidas (Lon).
