Title

Chennette Row Sunday School, circa 1867

Description

Sepia-toned image of a group of children arrayed on a boardwalk outside a dark wood building. The smallest children sit with their feet dangling over the edge of a boardwalk, with larger children seated and then standing in rows behind them. The girls in the front two rows wear full, short dresses of varying prints and colors, some pinafores and many with shoulder ruffles. The boys wear dark short pants and jackets. The third and fourth rows the girls wear dark dresses with white collars, the boys dark suits with white shirts beneath them. Some of the girls have bonnets, almost all have their hair pulled back in the front and loose down their backs. The girls in the back row wear shirts tucked into skirts, some dark and some light. All the girls war their hair parted in the middle and either pulled back entirely or fastened back above their ears and hanging loose. Two women at the right end of the back row wear dark dresses with full sleeves, and their hair is parted in the middle and pulled back. Four men stand in the back of the group against the building; they wear dark suits and white shirts, and most are bearded. Three children peer through a window next to the group, on holding a small child sitting on the sill with her feet outside. A man to the side of the image wears a dark suit and a bowler hat. and the two small trees on either side of the children are in full leaf. The foreground is a grassy yard.
