Original B&W print. View of the beach at South Beach, Staten Island. At left is a row of buildings, mostly bungalows. A group of boys (most appear to be teenagers) are posed in the center of the image, facing the camera. In the foreground is a pile of debris (possibly the remnants of a campfire). A number of American flags are flying from flagpoles in the background. One of the buildings in the middle distance has a sign "MOORE'S" on front and a large sign on the roof for Rubsam & Horrmann Beer. Handwritten inscription along the top edge of the photo: "Ocean Breeze 1904." A previous cataloger identified the location as Camp Warren.
