 Fourth of July about 1906

Fourth of July about 1906

It's 90 ° in my part of Massachusetts, but people are outside, enjoying their barbecue parties with family and friends.  I hope yours is a very happy Fourth. 

And in case you need a refresher about what we're celebrating, here's the Declaration of Independence. that got us on the road to becoming a nation.
