Portrait of Angeline Perkins with her children

Historic black and white photo of Angeline, a young African American woman, sitting on the steps of a wooden house with her two toddler children. Angeline is dressed in a long-sleeve blouse with a bow at the neck and a long skirt, holding one child on her lap, while the other stands to her side. Both children are wearing white dresses with ruffles, and the standing child has a bow in her hair. The expression on their faces is serious.

Portrait of Angeline Perkins with her children, Nellie and William. Taken in Worcester, Massachusetts, circa 1900.
