Argenteuil en Seine, children
Here, one of the smallest "canoniers".
Canotier, boater, where in fact rich, not anyone could have a boat on the Seine, but they did invite others, so it became more and more popular.
This was supposed to be their "uniform" with this kind of hats and white shirt, black jacket.
And red scarf too.
That time, beginning of 1900, the impressionists time near the Seine, the ladies had umbrellas to hide from the sun, remain with white skin. We did forget it later, and so many skins got ill! Mine too.
Some of old usages had more then one reason!
