Description:Interior group portrait of men, women and girls posing in four rows, all dressed for a festive occasion. The second row is dominated by an older man with a moustache, dressed in a dark suit and tie. He is flanked by four middle-aged ladies in hats and elegant dresses, two on both sides. They are all seated, as well as a second man in the same row wearing spectacles but half cut out of the frame on the left. The other three rows consist of young girls and women predominantly with Bubikopf hairstyles, and three young men in hats in the upper right corner. The people in the back rows are standing, while those in the first row are probably squatting.
Comment:The (older) men and women are probably teachers.
