July 8, 1912: The Week Ahead

IT HAS BEEN a sweltering weekend in New York. These kids, in a picture taken on Saturday, July 6, 1912, have the right idea about how to beat the heat. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá is visiting the Museum of Natural History this afternoon.


In the week ahead: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá visits the Museum, has lots to say about raising children, and speaks on the binding power of religion at All Souls Unitarian Church in Manhattan.

    Just a slight correction to a probable mistype: the article dates the photo as being taken on 6th of June whereas the photo caption gives the date of 6th July. 
    By the way, I love the wonderful research, analysis and effort put into this project. Greatly appreciated!
