The family is standing outside a brick building with a big window. Ida is wearing a long black overcoat. Her children are standing on a large metal structure. Rosina is wearing a patterned coat with a beret. Henry is wearing a light coloured coat with black pants. He is also wearing a beret. They are all smiling at the camera.
