A black-and-white photograph of three people standing by a wooden flower trellis. The two women stand in front of the trellis and the man stands between them, behind the trellis. The women’s bodies are turned towards each other and the man’s body faces forward. All three are looking towards the viewer. The woman on the left is wearing a dark-tone, floral print dress and white shoes. The woman on the right is wearing a light-toned floral print dress with white shoes with a dark stripe across the top and dark heels. The man is wearing a white collared shirt. Behind them is a small structure with white siding and three windows. There are trees in the background. The photograph has a white frame with scalloped edges. A repeating embedded pattern on the verso reads [VELOX] and stamped along the bottom right edge is the text [623C].
