Description

A small Asian woman with a beaded head covering stands at a corner in front of a stucco wall. Around the corner the wall is brick, unstuccoed. A window is seen above her head. She is wearing a pale gold colored jacket and a long, dark brown or black dress, with a pink band near the bottom. A red sash or ribbon hangs across the front of her body. She is holding a piece of pink cloth.
