Rome, a city for romance


Crater Lake, Ore.

George Grimmell, Havre de Grace

"Crater Lake National Park was made a national park in 1902. Next year will be its centennial. It is the deepest lake in the United States at 1,932 feet. The island in the picture is called Wizard Island. Crater Lake was made when a volcano exploded 3,000 years ago."

Kentucky Horse Park

Natalie Harvey, Newark, Del.

"The Kentucky Horse Park, in Lexington, Ky., is devoted to the histories of equestrian interests. Sculptures of world-renowned thoroughbreds, especially Kentucky Derby winners, are located at the visitor center. One of the most delightful sculptures is of two foals, one cavorting, one at rest."
