 Creator:  Morris, Marriott Canby, 1863-1948 
 Notes:  Film negative showing a group of boys from the Germantown Boys' Club sitting on an overturned canoe near the water at Stone Harbor. A flag flies above them and buildings are visible on the far shore. The boys all wear hats and white shirts. 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.
