Description
A cabinet card with a black-and-white print depicting an unidentified man standing next to a Conestoga wagon drawn by three (3) oxen. Two of the oxen lay down on the dirt street. The man stands near the standing oxen and the proper left front wagon wheel holding leather reins in his left hand and a driving stick or whip in his right hand. The wagon has canvas-covered objects inside it. A group of men and boys in suits stand in the left background in the street behind the wagon. Two of the men wear aprons and all of the men are dressed in suits, although only one man wears a jacket. The boys are dressed in short pant suits. A line of shops runs along a brick sidewalk behind the gathered men. The title of the photograph is printed in white text in the lower right corner of the image. The series and photographer name are printed in black ink around the bottom and both sides of the mount. A narrative description of the series is printed on the reverse of the tan mount.
