On May 23, 1938, Narberth Public School presented a Historical Pageant in Narbrook Park with scenes from Indians and early settlers through World War I. Here boys dress up in Union and Confederate uniforms for the episode "Preserving a Nation", depicting the battle of Gettysburg.

The location of the photo is the Narberth School playground, now divided between a parking lot and Sabine Park.
