A beautiful day in Central Park one century ago

Here’s how your great-grandparents enjoyed Central Park almost 100 years ago (the postmark on the other side is stamped 1917).

The group of women seem to be relaxing and chatting, and the man on his own to the right appears to have some kind of camera or viewing device.

I don’t know what is going on with what looks like a baby carriage on the left. A shadowy figure appears to be sitting on the bench tending to it.

    I think that the man on the right has a broom that’s resting on its handle.

    I think the man on the right has the very first selfie stick for those big cameras a hundred years ago.
