[Group Portrait of Children]

Description:

Photograph of a portrait of a group of children organized into three tiered rows. The front row consists of a small group of young boys sitting on the ground. The second row consists of a group of seated young girls and a young woman who is seated in the middle. The back row consists of a small group of slightly older girls wearing either tartan printed or white dresses. There is a window both behind the group and on the right-hand side of the image. Many of the boys are holding wide-brimmed hats. The photograph is mounted on a patchy, light-colored piece of cardboard. There is a handwritten note in Spanish on the back of the photograph that translates to read, "This portrait is affectionately dedicated to the President of the Children's Society - Delia Lopez, G.A. Walls, Laredo, Tex Oct. 27, 1920"
