DescriptionOutdoor group portrait of boys and girls outside of a brick and stone building with windows and an arched doorway. The children look preteen or early high school age. There are three rows, and the first row is seated in wooden chairs. The first row is all girls, with their hands in their laps, and a few have elbows on the arms of the chairs. The girl on the far left has her chair tilted in toward the row, and she is not facing directly forward. The second row is boys and girls, standing, and the back row is standing up on chairs. Most children in the middle row are medium height except for a few shorter kids. The back row is all boys. One woman is sitting at the left end of the middle row. An American flag is displayed on the brick wall behind the children. The girls are wearing dresses, stockings, and have short hair cuts. Most of the boys are wearing dress shirts and dress pants. About half of the boys have ties. Perhaps the work of HH or RM Cole, active in central Illinois from 1854-1902.
