Above is Virtual Tour Close-up View #2 of the photo by Geo. R. Lawrence Co. of the June 19, 1906 NYC Keepers Mutual Benevolent Organization's dinner event held in the Terrace Garden. Below is a small version of the full group photograph digital image to which red numbers have been added by the NYCHS webmaster to indicate the general vicinity of the corresponding Virtual Tour Close-up Views.

Close-up View #2 shows 18 men, presumably keepers, all but a few of whom sport full mustaches. Four are seen wearing white carnations. The 18 are near a wall. The man in front of a small potted plant seems to have a small goatee or perhaps that's a piece of fruit in the elevated fruit bowl in front of him. Is the standee a waiter? Note shaded table lamps. White or light color ties or cravats predominate.
