Group of children sit on a sand bank, 1951

Dublin Core

Description

Six young children squint their eyes as they peer forward; four gaze directly at the camera while two others have their attention on a person or object to the right of the photographer. The children all sit on a sand bank; grass begins to grow halfway up the hill behind them, and a house and tress can be seen further up. The boys wear a mixture of overalls, jeans, and shorts with T-shirts, while the two girls wear skirts. Walch theorizes the group was interrupted while playing in the sand, which may explain why they look a bit irritated in this photograph (Walch, p. 87).
