Karel, John D.
Photograph of Mayor Karel buying first poppy from Miss Stewart, daughter of the late General Stewart, taken on City Hall steps. Head to knees shot of a girl in a warm belted coat and a close-fitted hat placing a poppy in the buttonhole of a hatless man in 3-piece suit and tie. The pretty, dark-haired girl is wearing a poppy on her coat lapel, and a large button on her coat pocket that says “American Legion Auxiliary Poppy”. Behind the two subjects to the right of the image is an ivy covered wall, and to the left are some steps.
