Description: Three young boys, posing with bicycles. They are wearing costumes: the boy on the left is dressed as a cowboy in furry chaps, the boy in the middle dressed as a Native American, and the boy on the right is wearing a fringed shirt, bandana and hat. There is a small stuffed dog in the bottom right foreground. There is a backdrop behind the boys that appears to be a landscape scene.
