She stands on a chair in between the two boys. User Feedback: "This photo is of 3 BOYS of the Chris Madsen family from Danevang. The boy on the left is Frederick. The boy on the right is Dr. Alva Charles Madsen. The child on the chair in the middle is actually a boy also----my father H.D. Madsen. My grandmother dressed him as a girl until the 4th child, Dr. Martha Madsen, was born." The photograph is not matted. It appears as though it was, but was actually scanned and later printed on photo paper as a single item.
