Children Swinging in 1924

This is a photo I came across on Shorpy. It’s of three children, who happen to be the offspring of James J. Davis, the Secretary of Labor in the Harding Administration. Davis was an American steel worker and Republican politician originally from Pittsburgh. He was affectionately known as “Iron Puddler” or “Puddler Jim.”

Also, he was an advocate of the eugenics movement in the early 20th century. Good thing his children look healthy.

    Where was that picture taken? The only place that resembles those towers is SW. Otherwise it looks like NYC.
