Shows a group of people posing for the camera in front of their house, including Nellie Freeman, Bernadine Bailey's mother. The rest of the group is likely Paul R. Wilkinson (the younger man with glasses), his siblings, and parents. Paul F. Wilkinson, Bernadine Bailey's nephew, is playing with a group of other children.

8/20/2020 M. Mitchell: The original film box has the name "H.B. Noyes Mdse Nat'l Bank" on the return label. I could find no connection between Noyes and the content of the film, including the house the group stands in front of. However, Merchandise National Bank was a bank in Chicago, the city where the elder Paul Wilkinson worked as a bank engineer (according to the 1930 census). The younger Paul Wilkinson (nephew of Bernadine Bailey), however, is recognizable in the film. My inference is that the inscription on the box has no bearing on the content.
