Camp Arrowhead, Jackson, OH, July 1954.

On a warm, humid and long-ago summer day mid-Century, Dad and Mom drove me to Jackson, Ohio and dropped me off at Camp Arrowhead.  Brothers and sister came along for the ride. In this sentimental  Kodachrome slide, shot by my father with his 35 mm Leica, brother Joe perches in the bow of a rental rowboat, a little uncertain about pushing off from shore. I'm in the stern likely pulling in a line loaded with perch. Camp was a memorable and enjoyable event, all those summers ago. Character-building comes to mind, so does hard work.  I'll bet that Dad and Mom were happy to have invested in the development of the oldest son.
