Pastoral scene – children along fence at right watching girl with dog and doll in carriage walk by. Woman in center background walking down lane.
A well-dressed young girl, out for a stroll in the country, stops to make conversation with a group of children playing on the fence in Distant Relations. She is carrying a parasol and is accompanied by a playful dog. The difference in their clothing suggests their families are of different means, although they may be related, as is implied in the title of the image.
