Church Celebrations

These two 4×5 glass negatives were found in film holders in an antique shop in Van Wert, Ohio. The last two are zoomed in versions. My guess would be these were taken between 1900-1920.


Going by the cross in the background and the table of food, I would guess it’s some sort of church celebration. Maybe a confirmation? Whatever it was, it looks like it was a hot day. Unfortunately for the men it was frowned upon to roll up their sleeves back then.
