Description
Charcoal sketch with some color on some of the figures. Soldiers, men, women, and a horse all gathered at a water trough. The men wash up and the women are doing laundry. Behind the trough, on the side of a building is a sign that reads "EAU MAUVAISE" (loosely translated to mean "non-potable water"). In the left background is a soldier reading a newspaper and smoking a pipe; more soldiers are behind him.
