Here’s a photo of some kids having fun cooling off in Rock Creek. The photo is from July 28th, 1921 via Shorpy. These kids look like they’re having an awesome time and I’m guessing is one of those D.C. summer scorchers where the thermometer is hovering around 102 degrees. Look at the kid in the middle. He looks totally overwhelmed by the water. Ah … to be a kid.
