A cabinet card with a black-and-white print of an unidentified man drinking from a jug while sitting in a wagon. The Conestoga wagon is missing its canvas cover so that the man is fully visible seated in the bed between the exposed ribs. His feet are propped up on the proper right front wheel and he holds a large ceramic jug up to his lips to drink. The wagon is drawn by two oxen that are significantly different in size. The wagon is parked in a dirt street with several store fronts visible along a brick sidewalk in the background. A group of white men in suits stand in front of the nearest storefront to the wagon in the right background. The title "White Man's Bar" is printed in white in the lower right corner of the image, inferring that the African American man in the wagon is drinking alcohol in the street because he is not allowed into the whites only bar. The series title and photographer name are printed in dark blue ink on the bottom and sides of the mount. A descriptive narrative about the series, "The Land of the Sky," is printed in black ink on the back of the tan card mount.
