TitleWatermelon Picnic Near Omak, Washington, ca. 1910
PhotographerMatsura, Frank S.
DescriptionA large group gathers at a farm near Omak, Washington for a watermelon picnic. Men, women and children hold large slices of the juicy watermelon. For this informal pose some of the pinickers show the camera how to eat a watermelon. Two young girls attempt to keep their dresses clean as they dip down and away from themselves to take a big bite from a shared slice. Watermelon grew nicely in the Omak and Okanogan areas, as well as peaches, apples, plums, and berries of all kinds.
