Pastoral scene - children along fence at right watching girl with dog and doll in carriage walk by. Woman in center background walking down lane. From the Inventory Listing of Sidney A. Alpert "Distant Relations ( 8.7 x 11.6) - S "
A well-dressed young girl, out for a stroll in the country, stops to make conversation with a group of children playing on the fence in Distant Relations. She is carrying a parasol and is accompanied by a playful dog. The difference in their clothing suggests their families are of different means, although they may be related, as is implied in the title of the image.
