Maker and Role
Wendie Rykenberg, Photographer
The front of the Colonial Arms forms the background. On the right bushes can be seen beside and in front of the right corner of the building. To the right the top of a tree can be seen behind the building. To the left is a bush in front of the left corner of the building. To the far left is a mechanical device. On the lawn are two cars (registration nos. NE9902 and NE9901) decorated with tied ribbons parked at an angle to that their back ends are close together and the front ends are further apart. In the triangular gap between the cars are a group of four people sitting on the ground. The two women seated at the front are facing the viewer. They are wearing long light coloured dresses with a ring of flowers in their hair. Each has a bouquet of flowers resting against her skirt. Behind the woman on the left is a bald seated man wearing glasses, dark trousers, and a long sleeved shirt with a patterned collar. Behind the woman on the right is a moustached squatting man wearing dark glasses, dark trousers and a long sleeved shirt with a patterned colour. In front of the group is a woven picnic basket with a bottle of wine leaning against it.
