Text from newspaper caption: Scenes at World's Largest Reunion as Hawkeyes in Southern California Get Together in Lincoln Park: Around picnic tables in the shade of tall trees through which brilliant sunshine filtered, most of the 100,000 Iowans and their friends who attended the annual festival gathered to dine with relatives and old friends. Here is a little corner of the picnic grounds in Lincoln Park which was filled with former residents of Iowa and visitors from the Hawkeye State. Besides picnic dinners, there was a program of speaking, music and entertainment as well as outdoor sports.
