1Title:  [Group on a boat], G[erman]t[ow]n Boys' Club, Stone Harbor Camp, [NJ]   
 Creator:  Morris, Marriott Canby, 1863-1948 
 Notes:  Film negative showing a group of men and boys from the Germantown Boys' Club gathered on a boat moored near the shore at Stone Harbor. An American flag flies from the top of the boat and a long causeway is visible in the background. 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.
