Killeany Holy well station and Young Natives, Aranmore

Five children are visible on either side of a stone opening. A stone pillar inscribed with a cross is visible beside them. The girl standing is wearing a print dress with a check shawl over her shoulders. A rocky field is visible in the background. Welch's caption identifies this as Killeany Holy Well. His reference to the children as young natives" possibly represents an imperial mindset."
