Description
Inscriptions/Signature

The black and white image is of two small areas fenced with white pickets. There are scattered tent-like triangular structures and a structure in the background with formline designs. There are poles in the background, some with flags and others with figures attached to them. There is a lot of vegetation around the structures and the background is mostly trees.

The text at the lower facing left reads:
53 INDIAN CEMETARY [sic]
