Good old days ice skating or the beginning of a race riot?

The negative comments I received after posting this last photo on Face Book was one of the many reasons I stopped using FB to post the museum archives. How in the world do you go from ‘The good old days’ ice skating at Druid Hill Park in the 1920s to ‘There’s a lot of racial tension here, look they’re carrying sticks’ to ‘it’s all Obama’s fault’!!??

The top two photos, although found in the DPW Museum Archives, I believe, are part of another collection, that the museum bought rights to use for one of its displays.
