Fourth of July on Squirrel Island, 1918
Contributed by Stanley Museum
Miles Bracewell (standing at the left of the photo) sings during the 1918 Fourth of July ceremonies at Squirrel Island. Bracewell, who had a summer home on Squirrel Island, was a noted baritone and opera star. His career on the stage was limited by physical lameness as a result of a polio-like illness, but he was in great demand as a vocalist.
The children taking part in this patriotic WWI ceremony are dressed up to represent American servicemen and women at home and abroad during the European War.
