During the late 19th century, nature study was emphasized at city schools and summer camps because it was believed that keeping children in touch with nature was beneficial for society as a whole. This turn-of-the-century photograph, taken by female photojournalist Jenny Young Chandler, shows a child's nature study group in Bedford Park, Bronx, New York.
