Description (Brief)
Black and white print of a man sampling an oyster at the back of a covered four-wheeled wagon. He is accompanied by his black serving girl. The oysterman is serving him and a horse is tied to the wagon. The print was originally pasted on a sheet of manilla paper with several smaller prints cut out and pasted on the other side and on the front and is thought to have come from a child's scrapbook.
