Thursday Photo Caption Contest

"Come on, ladies! They can take our keys, but they will never stop us from going to bingo!"

Congratulations to RexAnn! Your caption about bingo was the winning combination to win the contest and 15% off at the National Archives eStore.

These ladies aren’t letting a lack of cars, love of bingo, or age stop them from enjoying life! This photograph is from the 1970s DOCUMERICA series. The caption reads “Tricycle club of the Century Village retirement community meets each morning, 06/1973.”

Today’s photo also shows a meeting, but in a less sunny setting. Give us your wittiest caption in the comments below!
