Vacation Bible School

Description:

Photograph of a group of children and an adult female standing outside of a building to the right of the image identified as the Vacation Bible School. They are standing roughly into 4 rows, with the front row of girls wearing knee-length dresses and the boys dressed in different styles of dungarees. Only two of the girls are wearing shoes. There are two large trees in the distance. Black hand-written text on the back of the photograph is in a Germanic language, possibly Dutch, while a succeeding blue line of text reads, "Vacation Bible School, Stephanie Swendsen".
