Urlin Hunting Party

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this vintage photo, and the caption that comes with it:

"The rustic hunting campsite photograph was provided by the granddaughter of George Urlin, Grandview Heights entrepreneur and pioneering developer. Urlin and his business associates were responsible for laying out the plan for much of what would become the original Grandview village. George is reclining in the foreground with his dog and shotgun and his wife Alice is standing on the left with her gun. The other individuals are not identified, but the man wearing an apron standing near the camp stove is assumed to be a domestic. The large hanging buck waiting to be dressed suggests that Mr. Urlin was a serious hunter as well as businessman. The location and date of the photograph are not known but presumed to date prior to 1900."

Happy Friday ya'll!
