 Notes:  Film negative showing a group of men and boys gathered in a field at the Germantown Boys' Club around a rope strung across the center. Many of the boys wear suspenders and hats. Founded in 1887, the Boys’ Parlors Association of Germantown served as a safe space for neighborhood children whose parents worked longer hours in an industrializing city. The name changed in 1907 to the Germantown Boys’ Club after joining ranks with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Marriott Canby Morris served as the president of the club in the first decade of the 1900s.
