Black and white print of five men gathered around an open two-wheeled cart talking. A horse is harnessed to the cart. The men wear aprons and work clothes. 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.
