A full-length portrait of woman, seated in a wooden armchair, with two children. All three are facing the photographer, but both children appear to be looking to the right. The older of the two children stands to her right. His right hand rests on the left arm of the chair. A younger child sits on the woman’s lap. The woman is wearing a white blouse with a collar and a dark colored skirt, white stockings, and dark laced shoes; her hair is pulled back from her face. The older child on the woman’s right is wearing a white sailor suit, a popular clothing style for young boys in the mid-to-late 19th century. The boy's shirt features a wide, squared-off collar (probably blue in color) with white striped detailing. He is also wearing white shorts, white stockings, and dark colored shoes. The younger child appears to be wearing a white shirt and shorts, as well as dark shoes, which extend just past the child’s ankles. The background of the photo is difficult to make out, but there appears to be a mantel and drapery. The photograph is mounted on cardstock with an embossed scrollwork design around the perimeter of the mount. The photography studio’s name and address is stamped on the verso of the photo, “B. W. Stein Studio, 1827 7th Street N.W., Washington D.C.” The photograph is in poor condition with some light, mold, and dirt damage. The bottom left corner of the mount is torn.
