A series of two black and white images. The first features approximately 20 children posed about an ornamental garden. Some of the children hold barrows between them. A garden shed stands at the rear of the garden and the scene is framed by woodlands. The second image features a crowd of people seated on wooden benches observing a croquet match. Several buildings and woodlands are visible in the background.
