Description: A man wearing a hat in the right foreground, looking at two bulls. Another figure, a younger man or child, is at the left, standing with his hand on his left thigh, also looking at the bulls. There is some kind of farm structure in the field behind the two figures, possibly a small grain silo. Several buildings are visible in the near background: a school, several houses and a church. A mountain is in the background.
Subject Note: The road in the background appears to be Greenwoods Road, present-day Route 44, approaching the town of Norfolk from the east. The conical mountain in the background with a tower on its summit is Haystack Mountain.
