Descriptive UO Title
General NotesAn outside photograph of a large group of children -- boys and girls -- standing outside of a three-storey building. The structure has been identified as St. Andrews Roman Catholic mission school, and the children are, most likely, pupils of the school. To the far left of the photograph is a uniformed boy's band. Brass instruments and several drums can be seen. Standing behind the band are several men dressed in Euro-American clothing. Clustered in the middle are the girls. They appear to be grouped by age, with the youngest on the left and the older girl novices, many dressed in white and wearing a veil, on the right. Sitting on the ground in front of the girls are young boys. On the far right are the older boys, dressed in Euro-American clothing, and a priest wearing clerical garb. There are some women standing behind the girls and older boys. The school building exhibits 17 double-hung windows, one half-round window and three gable roof type dormers. There are two chimneys and a cross on the top. To the rear of the building is a smaller structure that may be attached. There is fencing behind the entire assemblage and in the background are rolling hills. The foreground shows patches of grass and dirt.
