A stereograph titled "Plantation Scene; Folks All Home" printed by J. N. Wilson of Savannah, Georgia. The albumen prints depicts six (6) unidentified children in the yard outside a log building with a brick chimney. A girl stands near the center with her hands inside a wooden washtub on a stand. A boy stands to her right with his back at the corner of the building and holding a large full basket on his head. Two younger children sit on a bench outside the building in the background. Two toddlers sit on the left side of the frame, one on the wheel of a small wooden cart and another on the ground next to a box or bin. The prints are mounted on tan card stock.
