Feeding the Swans may have been inspired by the Swan Pond located in Central Park in New York City. The park opened in 1859 and offered a variety of recreational activities for children, adults and families. The Swan Pond was especially popular with children, who enjoyed feeding the birds and relaxing in the serene setting.
