A young girl, Mary Lou Weaver, sits in a reclined model pose facing left of the camera. Wearing a loose dance costume, she has her head tucked into her chest, with her hand on her chin. Weaver sits on a carpet with geometric designs, against a backdrop with what appears to be a rainbow or target. The young dancer was part of the Meglin Kiddies performing arts school, which was renowned for supplying Hollywood studios with a bevy of background child actors, singers, and dancers for their movies. The newspaper caption incorrectly names Weaver as Meglin Kiddie.
