Some locals are enjoying a sunny afternoon by Whitehall mansion, watching the regattas race on the water!
This building still stands today and has been made into a [museum](https://www.flaglermuseum.us/). It seems to have gorgeous, turn-of-the-century interiors. The large Kenan pavilion [has an old train car inside it](https://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/0a/83/36/18/train-car.jpg).
[Here’s as close I could get to the house in Street maps](https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-80.0432683,3a,75y,219.48h,104.71t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1szDv4C5xkgWaEOBUzKawgHA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo0.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DzDv4C5xkgWaEOBUzKawgHA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D279.5394%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656). You can see we are on the right side of the house like in the photo, but the people were sitting on the edge of the water, and [it seems off limits today](https://www.google.com/maps/place/Palm+Beach,+FL,+USAemail@example.com,-80.0443627,125m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x88d8d6f618523787:0x3ba092c7d7a6471a!8m2!3d26.7056206!4d-80.0364297) unless you live in the residential buildings nearby. I wish we could get a photo with the same point of view.
[Close-up of people in front.](https://i.imgur.com/LkqJgbq.jpg) A family seem to have come out together. The gentleman, perhaps the girl’s father, looks suave with his walking stick.
The men behind seem to be cheering on the boats, smoking and talking.
[Close-up of people in the back.](https://i.imgur.com/GqPTbTF.jpg) The ladies have brought parasols, a must-have accessory if you were out and about in the 1900s! Especially in the tropical heat of Florida.
Two boys, maybe brothers, are sitting together and watch the races unfold in front of them. One is brave enough to sit in the little boat. Or maybe it’s their own boat, and they rowed there to get as good view of the race as possible!
Hope you enjoyed it!
I’m sweaty just looking at those outfits.
I go here all the time. Fun fact: Palm Beach is its own municipality, Miami is actually a good hour drive away from here.
