These four friends posed for portraits together on August 3, 1895, at Draper’s Studio in Bridgton, Maine. An inscription on the back identifies them as Clau [Clan?], Nan, Beth and Frank. Someone decided that a box of Stevens Confectionery chocolates would make a fun prop. Later, someone used a pen to draw a sign at the bottom of the photo that says “Keep off the Grass.” These four must have known each other well.
Adorable. I’d love to have friends like these. Could “Clau” be short for “Claudia”? And what does Frank have on his head in this first picture?

It’s hard to tell in this picture, but I think Frank, Nan and Beth are all wearing berets. It’s clearer in the second picture. They certainly had a sense of humor!
