This undated black and white photograph features a portrait of three children identified on the back of the card as Laura, Percy and Rives Stiles, the children of Dr. William C. Stiles and Nannie Rives. A young boy wearing a double breasted suit is standing to the left a baby in a wicker chair who is wearing a white dress. A young girl wearing a white dress is standing to the right of the baby. Both of the young children have a hand resting on the wicker chair. A patterned curtain is pictured behind the children. "Pratt Paris Texas" is printed along the bottom of the card that the photograph is printed on. The back of the card states that William Stiles, the father of the children, was born in Oktibbeha County in 1849.
