A black and white newspaper certainly does not do justice to these photographs! And the irony of speaking of a "flood of color" can not be ignored. Since 1930, Smith Park has had some sort of gardens as we saw in the following post from last year: https://menashabook.blogspot.com/2016/05/formal-flowers.html. As far as parks go in northeastern Wisconsin, its beauty is a mark of pride for Menasha.
