Above is Virtual Tour Close-up View #8 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 #8 shows about 20 men, presumably keepers, nearly all of whom sport mustaches. Seven are seen wearing white carnations. Among the 20 are some of those closest to the camera. Dark and light ties and cravats appear about even. Since the table napkins appear still folded standing upright, the dinner has not begun.
