This image is created with black ink on white paper. It shows a board house with a boarded up chimney and a partially boarded up window, as well as a lurching dogleg off of the back. In the side yard of the house—which is the lower portion of the image—there are two barren trees and a group of three figures playing with a possum. Behind the group of figures is a fenced garden, and behind the fenced garden is a distant row of homes. There are trees behind the homes.
