Three unidentified children in field


Three unidentified children in field


Black and white image of three children, two toddlers and one slightly older. All three wear overalls; the child in the middle has longer hair and a ribbon tied around her head. The other two boys have crew cuts. One wears a dark sweater, and all three hold hands. In the background of the image is a large stump, and then a pole fence and what appears to be a burned over section of forest. This image is part of the Herbert McMullen bequest. McMullen was a local photographer who owned a studio in Hillsboro; he also collected images of local life taken by other photographers.
