[Sepha Helen Edmunds in a school photograph in 1891]

Description: A group photograph of school children, including Helen Edmunds Moore, at the age of 11. Twenty-nine children, including both boys and girls, are arranged in three rows for the group photograph. The children are dressed in dress clothing, with the girls wearing long dresses, and the boys wearing long-sleeved shirts and dark pants. Some of the girls wear pinafores over their dresses; some of the boys wear suit jackets. One child, in the middle of the picture, is noticeably younger than the others and still wears the long white clothes of a very young child. Boys in the first row sit cross-legged on the ground. Helen Edmunds Moore is in the second row, fourth from the left with a handwritten "x me" below her torso.
