TCI NotesAn outside photograph of people sitting and standing next to a tent. In the back row there are six women standing in a line all with wing dresses, shawls around their shoulders and a scarf on their heads. In the front row starting from the left to right is a boy, standing, with a suit on. A man on one knee is dressed in a suit with a hat at his feet. The man in the middle of the front row is also on one knee dressed in a suit. In front of him is a girl dressed in a cloth dress, sitting on the ground. An elderly woman is sitting next to her. At the time the photograph was taken, she had moved her head so her face is a blur. The man on the end is sitting on the ground also. He has his legs crossed and he is also in suit.
