Vintage Camping

Camping for leisure - Even in days we consider daily life with all the "then" modern conveniences a bit primitive, families ventured out to enjoy the Great Outdoors.

These photos are of my husband's father's family during the early 1920s.  They are labeled Yellowstone Park, Glacier Park,  and Fish Fry.  I'm pretty sure the family lived in Conrad, Montana at the time.

My favorite ones are my Grandmother-in-law, Mabel (Fey) Robertson with her sons, Walter (the youngest) my father-in-law,  Charles Robertson Jr. 

I love that she joined in the fun and got wet up to her hips!

These are labeled Yellowstone. Mabel smiling (I'm pretty sure that's her) and her mother-in-law Etta Faulconer Robertson Everingham is next to her.

(more Mabel and Etta in Yellowstone)
Chains on the rear tires - must have been for offroading.

"Fish Fry" This might not be a camping trip but a town-wide picnic or something
