Description

A sudden downpour catches a few elegant women off-guard in a humourous scene from this set. One woman blocks her ears, frightened of the loud thunder, whereas another seems completely unperturbed and continues to read her book. Another woman, probably the mother of the crying child at her feet, attempts to disassemble the mosquito net tent that the women have been relaxing in, while a man sets up the wooden sliding doors to give them some protection from the rain.
