Description
A digital print of a man and woman sitting on the wooden front porch of a house in Lincoln, Nebraska. The woman, sitting on the left, is wearing a white dress and in a rocking chair. The man is seated on the right in a wooden chair and wears a grey suit and mustache. A small cat sits near the man's feet. Three steps lead up to the porch, which has two columns framing the door and is decorated with several potted plants. The windows appear to have lace curtains, there is a thermometer mounted to the left window, and the address plate [1821] is visible to the right of the door. The screen door is closed but shows through to photographs and a piece of furniture just inside the house.
