DescriptionA black and white image of mostly female African American students waiting on the side of a railroad track, possible at a railroad depot, for President Herbert Hoover. In the distance on the right side of the photograph is a telegraph utility pole, as well as tall palm trees. The roof of a house is barely visible. At the forefront of the image running along its edge are grooves for a railroad line, as well as a wood plank pathway for crossing. A line of mostly female students runs from left to right in the image. All of the girls are dressed in the school uniform, which consists on a white long-sleeved shirt, a tie around the neck, a dark pleated skirt, dark stockings, and dark dress shoes. One of the girls in the image is wearing white stockings. One boy is in the photo with his back to the photographer. He is wearing a suit jacket and pants, and he is holding a homemade white sign with the words "Bethune Cookman College Welcomes Herbert Hoover." The sign is attached to a long wooden pole, which the boy is holding. Many of the girls are either waving American flags, or pennants which have "B.C.C." on them. The girls at the left of the image appear to be standing in front of a buidling, which, given the location, may be a railway depot or train station. On the front of the image at the botton is written in black ink "Bethune-Cookman Welcomes Herbert Hoover- Feb 1929." On the back of the image is a number "2" stamped in blue ink. The photographer of the image is unknown.
