Playing Indian and Fishing with a Dog in a Rowboat

Playing Indian and Fishing with a Dog in a Rowboat
An on the water photo for the Vintage Photos Theme Park.

A curious photo of a boy and a dog in a rowboat out on the water. Both of them are looking toward the photographer, who's on the shore or in another boat. The boy is holding a fish in one hand and a fishing rod in the other, and he's wearing a headdress and other clothing in imitation of Native American garb (for a closer view, see a cropped version).

Along the far shore in the background is what looks like the silhouette of a swan, though it seems much too big to be a real bird.

This is an unused real photo postcard with an AZO stamp box on the back that suggests that the photo may date to sometime between 1904 and 1918 (or perhaps later).

Darn it, Alan. This is very cool - and I'm sorry I didn't get to the VPTP theme last week, because my "backyard fun" was a group of kids - including me - dressed up as "Indians" as the English imagined them!
I'll have to find another theme to fit the photo. : )
That child looks very regal, doesn't he?
