A cabinet card with an albumen print of a group of unidentified men, women, and children picking cotton in a field. The landscape behind the cotton field is barren, with a grove of trees in the far left distance. Most of the people are bent over picking, though some are standing upright and one person in the left background has a large basket hoisted onto their left shoulder. The print is mounted on a pale yellow card mount that is gray on the reverse. The title and photographer name are printed and handwritten in black ink on the reverse.
