Circa Summer 1964. LBJ and HHH eating BBQ. Note Helen Thomas in the background on the right. Humphrey was probably wearing this "mini-me" outfit that Johnson typically provided to important guests he hosted on his ranch.

Summer 1942. Ansel Adams took this photo of interned Japanese-Americans playing baseball. Adams was allowed to take these and other photos under highly controlled circumstances--no armed guards,  watchtowers,  or fences allowed to be seen--in any of the photographs that he published.

1938. George VI "relaxing" on a slide. This picture was probably not taken during the summer, but I thought it was fun to include it.
