These photos show members of the Fort Larned Belles (in period costume) at the fort, 'preparing a typical pioneer (Kansas) Sunday dinner'.

An accompanying letter gives the complete menu and details of the contest and winners, and identifies the women and the activity happening in each photo. See Text Version below for a complete description of the photos.
