description
Black and white photograph shows Murray Joyce's five children in a photography studio. Left to right, Maggie and Mary Lou are seated, with Beferd, Murphy, and Ovebra sitting higher behind them. Maggie is wearing a long-sleeved light blouse with black neck and chest detailing, tucked into a belted, long dark skirt, with her hands resting in her lap and one elbow resting on the seat arm. Mary Lou is also wearing a long-sleeved light blouse with dark neck detailing tucked into a belted, long dark skirt. She is holding up a cloth with her hands, appearing to display it for the camera. Beferd, the only man, is leaning onto the couch with one arm behind Murphy. He has a moustache and is wearing a suit coat and a dark button-up underneath with a popped white collar. Murphy is wearing a zig-zag patterned blouse with poofy shoulders and a V-neck, revealing what appears to be a white kerchief, with her arms draped behind Beferd and Ovebra on either side. Ovebra is wearing a white blouse with a black collar, an open, darker overcoat with black lapels and pleated arms, and a long skirt in a similar color to her coat. She is holding a black umbrella or parasol. The background is plain and a white furry rug is beneath them. The image is mounted and "Price, Photographer" is stamped in blue-purple ink in the bottom left corner. The back reads "All brother and sisters" in handwriting.
