Black-and-white image of two men near a doorway. The man in the left side of the image is seated next to the doorway, in front of a stone wall that is covered with chipped, scratched white paint in the top left quadrant of the image. He has short hair that is combed back and a white mustache. His arms are crossed in front of his chest and he is wearing a loose, white, long-sleeved shirt and white pants, with a thick black sash around his waist. The man in the right side of the image is wearing the same type of clothing, and he is standing in the doorway, leaning toward the left side of the image against the wooden frame. He is wearing a wide-brimmed straw hat.
