Some children in costume and on stage. A majority of them are arranged in five rows against the backdrop of the stage. The main scene is one near a water mill with many of the actors paired together. The backdrop is representative of a downtown street, including a cafe, bank, bakery, and apothecary. In front of the stage are three women, one of which is observing what is on the stage, another playing the piano, and the last turning pages for the piano player (cut off on the far right side).

Two envelopes and a reciept. The recipt is unevenly cut in half, and the half present has a date (3/20/1952) and a few names (\"Ester Enze\"" and \""Rose Fleckenstein\""). The back gives the name \""Gumpers.\"" The smaller gray envelope gives the name of the group (Blue Birds) and some print information (\""8x10 Kodabromide 1\"" with \""about 25 sec @ F/11\"" and \""5x7 Koda 1\"" with \""aobut 20 sec @ F/16\""). The larger envelope gives minimal information; it gives the name of the group (Blue Birds) and that is was a \""gay 90's show.\"""
