DescriptionOutdoor group portrait of boys and girls seated in three rows in front of a brick building with windows and an arched stone doorway. An American flag is displayed on the wall behind them. The first row is all girls. Two girls that are dressed alike are sharing a chair in the middle of the row. Two more girls are sharing a chair toward the right side of the row. Most of the girls have their hands in their laps, but a few have their arms and elbows resting on the arms of the chairs. The second row is mostly girls and a few boys, and they are standing. One boy on the right end is wearing overalls. A woman is standing at the right end of the middle row, in front of the doorway. The back row is all boys, and they are standing up on chairs. The girls are wearing dresses and skirts with short hair cuts, and the boys are wearing dress clothes. Perhaps the work of HH or RM Cole, active in central Illinois from 1854-1902.
