Games of marbles, jump-rope, crack the whip, baseball, tag, telling of tall tales, the teacher admonishing a student, and let us not forget the sneaking out of detention game all rendered in this one image illustrates Shorey's attention to detail and his ability to create energy and movement on a two dimensional surface.
