Georgia’s recent pre-summer heat wave left many of us wilted and wishing for the languid days of childhood. Of course, one of the pleasures of summertime has always been summer camp. The photos of Camp Dixie in the Carlisle Family Photographs Collection show that not much has changed since they were taken in the mid-1920s.
The photo collection at the Atlanta History Center portrays four generations of the Carlisle Family of Atlanta. In addition to the summer camps, the collection includes images of basketball games and a military parade in downtown Atlanta shortly after World War I.
So dive in for some summer fun (and check out the skinny dipping shot!)
