This image depicts four small children siting on a flight of wooden steps leading to a porch in front of a brick building. There is an open doorway off the porch, with a box, possibly a mail box, attached to the wall next to the door. The little boy on the top step, wearing a light colored long sleeve shirt and trousers, and holds a piece of string in his right hand. Midway down the stairs is a young boy in a light colored button down shirt and pants. He sits with his left hand on his hip. Two little girls sit on the bottom two steps. Wearing white shirts, dark vests, and dark pants, the smallest girl looks away from the camera over her left shoulder, toward the boys behind her on the stairs. The larger girl, on the bottom step, turns her head to gaze to the viewer's right, hands folded in her lap. The pavement at the foot of the steps is cracked, broken concrete with weeds growing out of the cracks.
