Photograph of a couple identified as the "Franklins" conversing with one another on the front porch of the club house at the Santee Gun Club (formerly Blake's Plantation). The man is Dwight Franklin and the woman is possibly Mary McColl, Jr., who later married Franklin in 1928. The image was taken during the 18th annual meeting of the American Association of Museums.

The conference coincided with the 150th Anniversary of the founding of The Charleston Museum and then Director, Laura Bragg arranged for tours of various sights and plantations around the Lowcountry for the AAM members and their spouses.
