Abstract

"What's in a Picture?" piece briefly describing June Day, a unique holiday invented in the city of Eastport in the mid-1800s. June Day was an occasion for local men's clubs to gather for a seaside picnic, as well as for families to plan outings or for schoolchildren to head out on woodland hikes. The holiday was celebrated in Eastport for more than 70 years, but petered out by the 1920s.
