William Ward Watkin as a small child. He is standing, holding a drumstick, with a toy drum slung around his neck. He is wearing a dress appropriate for the time and his age. On the left-hand side of the image a rectangular planter filled with flowers can be seen, and on the right-hand side is a small table, covered with a finely-stitched tablecloth. A black toy horse, with painted saddle and bridle, mounted on a platform with elaborate white wheels, is on top of the table. Original resource is a sepia photograph.
