[Hispanic Family in Front of a Brick Building]

Description:

Photograph of a young Mexican family (identified as the Olivares family) standing in front of a brick house. The family consists of a couple and six young children. The family is standing in a row and looking at the camera. From left to right, there is a young boy and two girls of the same age, a slightly older boy, the mother holding a toddler, the eldest daughter, and the father. The two youngest girls are twins, and are both wearing the same skirts and white shirts. Everyone else is wearing light colored shirts and pants or shorts except for the eldest daughter, who is wearing a plaid dress and an apron, and the mother who is wearing a dress. The brick building behind them has two screened doors on either side of the corner. It also has two windows on the right side of the image. Shrubs are visible in the foreground. There is handwriting on the back of the image that reads, "Laredo - Olivares family Agosto 1951".
