I took this shot at 1023 West Wilson on August 31 of 1974. This was a Filipino grocery store, not a day camp as I originally thought. The signs in the window say, “We will be closed for Labor Day,” “Philippine Times on sale here, 25 cents.” and “ampaguita.” The S got cropped off. The full name of the store was Sampaquita.

My thanks to a reader who wrote in provide additional details about this shot. Her family owned the Guatemala Cafe two doors away. When she and her brother got bored, they would sometimes come down to play with this young boy. Sampaguita is a flower – a part of the Jasmine species. It is the national flower of the Philippines.
