A cabinet card with an albumen print of three (3) unidentified women and seven (7) unidentified children posed on the porch of a wooden house.

The other two women are surrounded by the children who are seated and standing, with one young child in the lap of one of the women. The building is surrounded by a swept yard and a rough-hewn fence. The title "Folks Al [sic] Home" is imprinted in the lower left facing side of the image. The photographer's name and address are printed in black ink on the reverse of the gray card mount, with an additional handwritten inscription on the back with the name Herman Barthmaier.
