A group of domestic servants posing outside one of the college buildings. The housekeeper is wearing a dark coloured dress. The two young maids are wearing a unifrom dress with a collar plus a cap and apron. The manservant is wearing a suit and the boy a uniform. These clothes would have been typical everyday wear for servants in most houses. Servants working for the most wealthy people may have also had special uniforms for grand occasions.
