Elevated view of Waukesha with two women wearing dresses with a boy in long pants and tam o'shanter hat in foreground against a split-rail fence. Beyond the fence, two elegant horses carry a man and woman riding side saddle behind two people in a high-wheeled wagon pulled by a single horse. Two children play on a teeter totter in one of the yards bordering the town, and just beyond is a lumber pile, a steam train traveling to the left, and the river or mill race. Waukesha spills to right and left beyond the river.
