FIVE WELL DRESSED HIKERS: CARRYING WALKING STICKS AND BINOCULARS

 This vintage real  photo postcard features five men in their hiking attire. They certainly don’t seem to be wearing very comfortable clothing for a hike. I hope there was no scrambling or navigating slippery portions of the trail required. If so, their suit pants won’t have a long life span. Other than wearing clothing that may hamper their efforts, the men are well equipped with binoculars and walking sticks. The men have cases for the binoculars and the gentleman all the way on the left has a larger bag slung over his shoulder. The men are also well supplied with smoking materials. Two of the men have cigarettes/cigars and two others are holding a pipe. Interestingly, mustaches must have been in vogue considering that each of the men are wearing one. Hats must have been equally popular.  It would be fascinating to know the story of this gathering of outdoorsmen. The former owner of this image believes that the men are tourists, but he offers no supporting evidence. This vintage photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
