group of boys kneeling and standing next to a miniature train ride at the white city amusement park

Informal group portrait of a group of Chicago Daily News boys kneeling and standing next to a miniature train ride at White City amusement park, located at 63rd Street and South Parkway, now Martin Luther King Drive, in the Woodlawn community area of Chicago, Illinois. Steam is blowing out of the train's smokestack, and three of the news boys are covering their ears. A man is sitting in the driver's seat of the train, wearing a cap turned sideways on his head. An African American boy and two Caucasian girls are sitting on the ride in the background. Text on image reads: Daily News boys at White City.
