image number:

P0022600

description:

This image was scanned from a photograph album that Ward Hanger gave to his future wife Lena Kern whom he married on June 27, 1902.

Hanger's caption for this image reads, in full:
"We wandered to the park one day
But who are 'we' I pray
He who looks up in angelic wonder
Is simply Walter Saunders
The man with worried look
Is he, who, the picture took
His name is Hunter
The Punster
and you see
It's 'me'
by the tree."
