Literature

Black-and-white image of four women, one holding a baby. The women are standing on a cobblestone street in front of a stone wall, and the two women in the left side of the image are standing in a tall doorway. The women are all wearing patterned, ankle-length skirts and dark, knitted shawls around their shoulders. The women are all barefoot.
