Description
A black-and-white digital image of Taylor family members on the beach on Martha's Vineyard. In the middle of the picture is a stretch of beach on which many families are sitting and standing. At center is a group of men, women and children in bathing suits with towels. One woman is facing towards the camera, and the rest of the group are facing in other directions. In the background, people are wading and playing in calm ocean waters. Beyond the wading area is a rocky jetty that extends out into the ocean. This is the same image as 2014.112.139.
