Written on the back of the print, "Scout Bicycle Hike Brookfield Zoo Spring 1937 L. to R.-Marion Stoffel; my bicycle; Ruth Gilmore; Sophie Stephens; Helen Sauer." Not long to World War 2 for these young ladies. When I see something like this, just before the war, I always wonder how the subjects would be changed by the conflict. They're all old enough that they entered adulthood during the fighting. Did they enlist, marry a soldier, go into war work?
