It shows a pastoral scene with a blind girl sitting in the foreground. A small accordion rests on her lap. At the top of her neckline is a note that reads "Alms for Blind." She is holding the right hand of a younger girl who is sitting to her left, marveling at two rainbows in the background sky. Their clothes are threadbare, and the blind girl has a shawl draped over her head. "Suppl to Chicago Tribune Dec 14-1902" is printed at bottom left corner.
