Union Picnic Flyer


This flyer advertises the 1925 Union picnic. For many years the First Baptist Church and Embry African Methodist Episcopal Church sponsored a joint annual Sunday School picnic. It was held at Suburban Gardens in the Deanwood neighborhood of the District of Columbia. Unlike others, the seven-acre amusement park welcomed African-American visitors to enjoy the roller coaster, Ferris wheel, swimming pools, and picnic grounds. Suburban Gardens opened in 1921 and was in operation until 1940.
