DescriptionOutdoor image of a house with clapboard siding, windows, shutters, roof shingles, chimney, lightning rod, a porch with columns and a door leading off the porch. A woman, girl, and man are standing on a wooden sidewalk that leads up to the porch. They are looking down at the girl, and the girl is looking at something she is holding in her hands. Where the porch meets the rest of the house, a flowering vine has grown the height of the first story and has continued along the gutter of the porch roof about half way. The vines extend down two of the porch columns too. A chair is sitting on the porch next to the door, and a hat is sitting on the chair. A woman is standing inside, behind the door, and she is visible through the glass on the door. A small table with potted plants on the porch is visible behind the group standing on the sidewalk. A bush is next to the sidewalk. Perhaps the work of HH or RM Cole, active in central Illinois from 1854-1902.
