Description: A woman wearing a dress, jacket and hat sitting on a bench along the Lake Worth Trail. There are palm trees lining the trail, which ran along the shore of the Lake Worth Lagoon, visible on the left.
Date note: While the date provided by Rollie McKenna for this image is circa 1900, it may be closer to 1912 if the film is cellulose nitrate (which it probably is). According to the Image Permanence Institute, Kodak did not start manufacturing 5x7" sheet film until 1912. From "Photographic Negatives: Nature and Evolution of Processes"
