Acadia Tea & Tennis Society by Ed Parker.
This image, like St. Duffer’s Golf Club, portrays the pretension in society, but it’s all in good fun. This lawn tennis game takes place in 1880s’ Maine. There, the wealthy visitors, who were called “rusticators” or flatlanders,” built summer “cottages” (that were really huge homes) and spent the summer sailing, eating lobster, socializing, and playing tennis. The image is also full of things – like the lobsterman – that puncture the balloons of pretension and bring a touch of reality.
