Charity work for school holiday camps in St. Amandsberg (1933)
From 1923 the Charity work for school holiday camps in St. Amandsberg organised for pupils from state schools a free stay on the Belgian coast. The initiative was unsubsidised, so money had to be raised in various ways, including flower sales, gala performances and pigeon charity flights. In 1963, the newspaper "Het Laatste Nieuws" published this photo from 1933, hoping in an example of crowdsourcing avant-la-lettre that some of its readers might recognise themselves in this group.
