Description: Black-and-white glossy of girls learning to play a game outside at Kwang Wha Wun Home (Radiant Light Home) in Chungju, South Korea. Three girls are walking under an arch formed by the outstretched arms and clasped hands of two taller students who face one another. Two other students, standing at left, wait their turn; one is facing the camera, and a woman standing behind her, at far left, also faces the camera and has her hands on the upper arms of the girl, as if turning her toward the camera. The taller students are dressed in sweaters and skirts; the younger girls wear long-sleeve tops and overalls. The woman, Mary E. Hill, is wearing a plaid jacket and skirt. She wears eyeglasses, and her hair appears to be graying. Windows of a school building are visible in the background. Handwritten in blue ink on reverse: "Learning to play!"
