A silver gelatin print depicting a black-and-white image of four kids in a doorway of a building on Blake Avenue, New York City. Three of the children are standing side by side in front of the door frame, with the child in the middle wrapping her arms around the other two’s shoulders. The fourth child is standing in front of the middle child. They all are wearing clothes for cold weather with layered shirts under their jackets, long pants, and closed toed shoes. The three boys, the two flanking in the back and the one in the front center, are all wearing hats with a bill and attached earmuffs made of visibly different material. The young girl in the middle has a scarf around her head.
There are no inscriptions on the front of the photograph. There are numerical inscriptions on the back in red pencil and graphite.
