Elderly women, umbrellas open on a hot day, socialize while sitting on a bench outside the Page Museum. The fence safeguards them from the wooly mammoth. Photo caption reads: "Seniors' small talk in sunshine, and what's an imperial mammoth? The conversation among these ladies is not cluttered up with paleontology, there are even more toothsome topics". Photo dated: May 14, 1967.
