This black and white photograph is of a family posing against a wall. There are two couples who are framed in the center of the photograph. The entire family is seated, except for a boy in the center back. The photo was taken by the Vanguard Studios based out of Bombay, now Mumbai, India.

This photograph is part of a series of photographs dating from 1900-1990. Some are painted photographic prints, while others are small studio photographs. Notably, many of the photographs are dated and signed by the photography studio, making them particularly rare as this type of information is often lacking from many archives.
