This family came up with a variety of ways to pass their time on vacation, from fishing and shooting to playing guitar, dominoes and at least four different board games. Someone had the great idea to make a visual record of their activities. Two women in the group find the idea a little embarrassing.

The following two photos were together in the same album with the ones above. Many thanks to Kraig Anderson of Lighthousefriends.com for identifying Chicago Lighthouse:
You can see more pictures of the lighthouse and read Kraig’s excellent short history of it on his Chicago Harbor Lighthouse page. The lighthouse was moved to its current location in 1918 after a new breakwater was constructed.
Someone with knowledge of Chicago architectural history could date the last image. The city looks so small as to be almost unrecognizable.
