This gallery is a tribute to its photographer, my Aunt Mary. She was the family's "documentarian". Always on hand with her 8mm film camera, she captured the essence of our youth.
The Clam Bake was our annual family reunion. Traditional activities were "The Bake", "The Egg Toss", "The Penny and Peanut Search".
The pictures below, in chronological order, were her work, pulled from the 8mm films she shot. They are not cropped, and tweaked slightly in Lightroom.
Thanks, Aunt Mary.
