The Bouya

Please e-mail me with any additions, corrections, and comments

This photograph has been in the family for 108 years. It shows 40 people and a dog at a "Bouya" party at Lake Johanna in St. Paul, Minnesota. Unfortunately, no one seems to have recorded who the various people are. I am certain that they are various members of the Robert and/or Durocher families. Frank Robert Jr. (fifth from the right) and Cyprien Durocher (farthest to the right) are tentatively identified. I would appreciate it if anyone can supply any other identifications.

The Bouya is being served from a large pitcher into mugs. This suggests the soup was more of a broth. Two men sitting in the front are holding guns. "Pot luck" seems to have been in vogue. The dog looks remarkably like Strider.
