Robert Seymour (c1800-1836) drew a series of humorous sketches (including several on pic-nics) from 1834-1836. Picnic problems included being "cow'd," a no trespassing type sign on the riverbank, and items in the picnic basket shifting and breaking.

Niagara's International Hotel waiters marched and served to music in 1860
To feed the hundreds of guests, the waiters marched to the band's music: "Norma" to lay down the place settings; a march to enter; piscicato for fish, and removed the covers to "a crash of trombones, cymbals and gongs."
