These were Phillipsburg teenagers, about l930. The little kids had their

eggs boiled and ate them during the day, the teenagers at night. Makes you wonder who had a flash camera back then....

There are four older boys in the back row, the one on right end, who looks like he had darkened his face or just had one incredible suntan, is "The Rich Boy".
