Quarter plate daguerreotype. (Substantial scratching to plate including large scratch near upper right, with tarnishing to edges.) Housed in a full pressed paper case (spotting to mat, surface wear with finish loss to case). Among the posed subjects is a man, possibly an African American, wearing a top hat near the gate of the picket fence in front of the house. Two women rest on the porch behind him.
