Archival Field Trip

I’m wishing I had been invited along on this Ektachrome field trip from the 1940s. I’m assuming the event was scout sponsored w/a tree planting theme. I’m happy to see a screen surrogate for myself in the way of the lady in the green cardigan, screen left, in the fourth still (in my remake, she’d be redressed w/an all cotton bandanna around her neck). In packing for this trip, I’d supplement my stock collection of buffalo plaid shirts and knickers with a few provisions from Boy’s Life magazine and Catalogue Manufrance 1931.
