Schoolchildren at the train station


Schoolchildren at the train station


Black and white image of a large group of children, gathered at a train station. Most of the children are gathered to one side of the tracks, though at least one boy has wandered over to the other side. Another boy is about to climb a power line support, while a boy behind him waves a United States flag. The boys mostly wear knickers; a number have newsboy caps. The women wear cloche hats and hats with large, floppy brims. In the background, a farmer waits with his load of wood, a piece of a single large log. A boxcar door on the station reads, 'Spokane Portland & Seattle 3073.'
