crowd surrounding a man being tossed high into the air at the wilson avenue bathing beach

Image from a distance of a crowd of mostly young men in bathing costumes surrounding a man being tossed high into the air by a piece of fabric stretched and held up by members of the crowd at the Wilson Avenue bathing beach in Chicago, Illinois. Referred to as "rolling the blanket". Lake Michigan is visible in the background.
