A woman with a flipped forelock of hair, Mine Okubo, stands with her hands on her hips, facing the viewer while looking to her right at two women who are wearing the identical, catalog-ordered, cross-patterned shirt and pleated skirt as she. The woman next to her carries a cloth bag containing knitting needles; the woman in front of her, center foreground, is older and wears eyeglasses. Two men are passing behind them; one turns to look at the trio. Barracks and a utility pole are visible in the background.
