Group portraits
DescriptionOutdoor group portrait of boys and girls outside of a brick and stone building with windows. There are three rows, and the first row of all girls is seated in wooden chairs. The second row is standing, and the back row is standing up on chairs. The back row is all boys. One woman is standing 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 most are wearing Mary Jane's. Most of the boys are wearing suits or ties with their dress clothes, but a couple have sailor outfits on. A few kids are smiling, but most have blank expressions or are frowning. Perhaps the work of HH or RM Cole, active in central Illinois from 1854-1902.
