label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: Frances and Mary Allen photographed the children of Deerfield, Massachusetts, playing and working. In this picture, the chore of feeding the chickens fell to the older girl to do as the younger boy stands by watching. The children are barefoot while they worked; shoes were saved for best occasions.
