Unidentified family gathering


Unidentified family gathering


Black and white image of large group of people gathered in front of a cross-gabled house with a covered porch. Some of the people are standing, some are seated, and some adults hold younger children. The men wear suits and most wear hats and either beards or mustaches; the younger boys wear dark slacks with suspenders and white shirts, some with armbands. Their hair is short, parted on the side, and combed back. The women have their hair up in styles reminiscent of a 'Gibson Girl,' and some wear hats. The women mostly wear dark skirts, belted at the waist, and white blouses with full sleeves and high necks. Some wear wide-brimmed hats. Two young girls standing at the front left of the crowd wear dresses with pleated or ruffled fronts and elbow-length sleeves. One wears a sailor hat, while the other wears a wide-brimmed straw hat. In the image front right a keg sits on a saw horse, with a pitcher and a mallet set on top of it. Against the wall of the house a number of garments and coats hang, as well as pans, buckets, and other implements.
