Here is something you are highly unlikely to see today. Kids on the South Lawn, riding a goat cart. Quaint.

    These are certainly President Harrison’s grandchildren. He had two children by his first marriage, Benjamin Russell Harrison, who is evidently in the photo, and Mary, whose married surname was McKee, both of whom were in their 30s during his presidency. “Baby McKee and sister” must be her daughters. The photo includes just a glimpse of the vast complex of high-Victorian greenhouses and conservatories that stood on the site now occupied by the West Wing.
