Description: Three stuffed alligators are on porch steps, two with sticks propping their mouths open. There are potted plants and rocking chairs on the porch behind them.
The writing on the index card attached to the verso of the contact print indicates that there is some debate about where this was taken, Okeetee Club or someplace in Palm Beach, Florida, where Joe's Alligator Farm was located.
Inscription: Glass side, bottom right: "114" in white grease pencil
