Description

Sepia-toned image of a group of children in Colonial costume. A boy and girl stand on a box, surrounded by ten other small boys. The smaller boys all wear tri-corn hats and colonial-era jackets, vests, pants and shoes. One boy holds a sword; two appear to hold books or papers. The boy on the box wears a fancier version of the same, and holds a sword. The girl wears a colonial-era dress with shawl and mob-cap. The photo is mounted on a board and names are written around the image.
