Description:
Document digitized by the Digital Library of Georgia in 2000, as part of GALILEO.
This is a photograph of four apparently middle-aged adults standing in front of a wood house with a rock chimney. There appears to be snow on the ground. There are three women wearing what appears to be white kerchiefs tied around their heads, probably as protection against the cold, and white aprons over their dresses. The man appears to wear a white kerchief tied around his head in the same manner, also as if he is protecting himself from the cold. He wears a formal dark suit. The house appears to be a small one room cabin.
