Carte-de-visite of Abby Hadassah Smith and Julia Evelina Smith shown in full portrait. The Smith sisters are shown standing with one shown in profile with her left side facing the camera.

Both women wear dark colored bonnets, dark duster coats over their dresses, and have large paisley shawls draped over their arms around their backs. They stand in front of a wall with decorative wallpaper on the lower portion and behind a small wooden table.
Handwritten in graphite on the mount below the print is the text, "Abby Julia". On the back of the photograph, handwritten in graphite, is the text, "The Smith sisters / Glastonbury / Conn. / 1877".
