The album containing Dezső Bozóky's travelphotos (second). Related item: A.4760.2. (album). Unknown photographer. Photograph purchased by Dezső Bozóky. Boys of diverse ages and social classes sit or stand outside a single-storey building. The man sitting in the centre on the only chair is probably the schoolmaster. The elder boys hold an evangelical reader for small village schools. Some of the younger boys also hold books, with Korean script on the cover. The photo was probably taken when the books were donated to the school.
