General NotesA three-storey brick building, identified as the St. Andrews Roman Catholic Mission School of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, is in the middle of the photograph. A series of hills are located behind the building. An unpaved street runs parallel to the hills. The first floor of the building has four windows on the near side of the building. A set of steps lead to a door with an entryway, located between the four windows. A sidewalk leads from the steps to the street. The second floor has five windows on the near side. The top floor has two windows and a chimney. Three basement windows are visible at ground level. On the street side of the building, there are three windows and a porch on each of the first two floors. On the ground floor, a set of steps lead from the street to the porch. On the second-storey porch, a ladder leans against the wall, leading to a window on the top floor. A fence is in front of the building. A flag pole, bearing the United States flag, extends at an angle from the street side of the building. Five unidentified individuals, wearing Euro-American clothing and hats, are standing in front of the school.
