Children Saluting at the Fountain, Bible School Park, New York, ca. 1920s

Children Saluting at the Fountain, Bible School Park, New York, ca. 1920s
A photo of faith, hope, and charity for the Vintage Photos Theme Park (any one of these themes or all 3, post up to 3 photos).

A real photo postcard of children who are standing around a fountain and displaying their patriotism and faith by saluting a flag and cross at Bible School Park, which was located in Johnson City, New York.

A posting on the Davis College History blog (see Shall We Gather at the Fountain?) reprints this same photo and explains that the fountain was originally built as part of an amusement park. The Practical Bible Training School later bought the park, and today it's the site of Davis College, a Bible college.

A second blog posting (see Postcard of the Front Drive of PBTS Looking to Riverside) shows another postcard and a contemporary view of where the fountain stood.
