A black-and-white digital image of Taylor family members on the beach on Martha's Vineyard. The lower proper right corner shows a portion of a seawall in the foreground. At proper left is a group of three (3) men, two of whom are facing the camera and one of whom is facing to the left. In the middle of the picture is a stretch of beach on which many families are sitting and standing. People are wading and playing in calm ocean waters in the background. Beyond the wading area is a rocky jetty that extends out into the ocean. This is the same image as 2014.112.60.
