In the first decade of the 20th century, editors frequently commissioned photographs from Deerfield, Massachusetts' Frances and Mary Allen of children for publications such as "House Beautiful" and "Country Life in America." Urban readers viewed these images of country children playing out of doors as positive scenes of healthy and wholesome recreation.
