As the pictures below demonstrate, everyone needs a little time off.
Circa 1910. Some teachers on a picnic having a good time during a summer break. Are they drinking liquor from a flask?
Circa Summer 1959. This is Castro playing baseball. Note the army boots. Allegedly, he was a decent baseball player.
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.
Late 1930’s. Prince Edward (after being King) jumping around with his wife, Wallis Simpson.
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.
Summer 1954. Eisenhower, on the left, loved to cook. Here he is with President Hoover bbqing up some steaks on his brazier grill.
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.
Circa 1916. Despite logging in over 1000 rounds of golf during his Presidency, Woodrow Wilson was a terrible golfer, rarely breaking 100.
