A black and white photograph of the original photograph of Mary McLeod Bethune's early schoolhouse in Tomoka, Florida. The schoolhouse has paned windows and is built of wood. A small belfry is just barely visible at the top of the image. A wooden ladder can be seen leaning against the left side of the building. Very tall trees can be seen in the background. In front of the school, in the yard, is a small group of three women and school girls standing in a circle holding hands. They are all wearing dresses. The three women are standing nearest the school, and are all wearing hats and coats. The woman standing in front of the door, dressed in a black dress and hat, is Mary McLeod Bethune. A small black "check" mark is visible just above her head, which must be present on the original image, indicating that is where she is standing. On the back of the image is written, ""Early school in Tomoka-- out from Ormond Beach, Florida. 1918. Bethune-Cookman College."" The image is printed on Kodak paper. The photographer of the image is unknown.
