Going away picnic

Dad says, “This picture was made near where we lived in New Jersey right before I got out of active duty with the Navy. My ship was in the Philadelphia shipyard at the time and we lived across the river in NJ. The occasion was a “going away picnic” for me, Peggy and Amy. That’s Amy in the basket. The others are officers from the ship and their wives. That is Peggy in the background. The man holding one side of the basket is Hank Atwood who later became the Commanding Officer of a US Cruiser.”
