A family of seven is sitting in the foreground around a table covered with books and flowers. Three young girls are sitting on the ground in front of the table, and an older man, holding a chisel hammer, and a woman holding a book are sitting on either side of the table behind the girls. Two women, one holding a hand fan, are sitting behind the table, and a man with a long beard and wearing a hat is standing near the gate holding a ball peen hammer. Behind the group is a shady yard with a picket fence and a frame house with a ladder laying flat on the roof behind the porch roof. A barrel is near the corner of the house near the porch.
