This is a great picture from Shorpy.com. It was taken on July 16, 1926 in the reflecting pool of the Lincoln Memorial. The comments from others mentioned that they would have been jailed if they had taken a dip nowadays. Another mentioned that these boys were destined to be part of the Greatest Generation. There may be other comments by now, but for sure it is a feel good picture and all the boys certainly looked happy on that day. Their futures were unsure with the war in their future, but luckily or not we can't look into the crystal ball and once being a boy not unlike those boys they and I would have been living for the moment.
