Two of the children are seated on a rug covered seat in front of Scovia and the third, probably Aubrey, stands beside her. Rada, an infant, wears a lace dress. Cleo and Aubrey are toddlers - Cleo wears a short dress with sash and Aubrey wears a sailor-style dress or jumper. Photograph was originally framed (frame discarded); written on back of frame was caption "Arris E. & Scovia Farlow Poston / children - Rada, Cleo, Aubrey".
