Black and white photograph of a group of children, approximately eighteen, in a field with trees.

Slightly out of focus, brownish in tone, pasted onto a page in the album, with a manuscript caption on the bottom white edge.

Note: along with 7ELB/A/8/44/2, this photograph seems to be of a sports day or fete.
