An old woman and a young woman sit on a wooden bench on the porch of a simple wooden house. The young woman, wearing blouse and full skirt, appears to be barefoot; she holds open a large book. The old woman is covered completely in close bonnet, heavy outer garment and boots; her hands are clasped under her chin. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
