Picture of children dressed up in costumes, holding up a flag-like banner with stars on the top half and stripes on the bottom half, resembling an American flag. Two children at the front wear capes and crowns, other children wear flower crowns or hats. They hold sticks and other decorations as they stand on a grassy area near a power line and trees. Some children are named in blue ink in the borders of the photograph: "Joe Gareri" on left side, "Mary Allen (Darcy)" on the right, with arrows pointing to children. Handwritten in pencil on the back is "circa 1947."
