(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 164: Lyle and Betty at the park

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be Wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Seaver/Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the
1988-2002 time period:

This photograph is labelled "Lyle and Betty [Carringer] at El Monte Park" (in San Diego County, east of Lakeside).  Betty appears to be two or three years old in this photograph, so it was probably taken in the 1921-1923 time frame.  The photograph was in the Pentecost photo album found in my Carringer/Seaver treasure box.

El Monte Park is a picnic area, but Lyle is dressed in a long sleeve shirt, suit coat, pants and tie and good shoes.  Betty is sitting on Lyle's left knee, and has an undershirt, short dress and leggings on.  This photo must have been taken in the fall or winter, and not in the summer.  Betty is holding something that looks like a water bottle.
