Circa 1910. The above "picnic might have taken place at Seibert's Grove about 11500 Gravois Road just north of Sappington Rd. where Sappington Garden Shop is now located. The building in the back is Seibert's Restaurant where they had amazing fried chicken. As a child I would go to picnics at the same place. It didn't change all that much in 20 years. Interesting array of food on the table. Some folks are holding out a cake, salads, pies and cupcakes."
