an old fashioned 4th of July

I wanted to share this old photo of my Grandma Abbie & her Sunday School class,
Celebrating the 4th of July sometime around 1910.
She was just 16-she is the pretty young lady on the far left second one in of the middle row-
she has quite a rocket in hand. Just look at the size of those rockets!
Can you imagine shooting off fireworks like this?!
I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day Celebration,
we're off to watch our fireworks display in a little while, the sun is almost down,
a perfect ending for such a Glorious Day.
