Black-and-white image of five male figures and a dog, all facing toward the viewer. The male figures are leaning against a store window, and the doorway and corner of the building are in the left side of the image. Four of the men are standing and wearing cowboy hats, and the second man from the left side of the image is seated on the ground, wearing a newsboy hat. The men are all wearing jeans and jackets or plaid shirts. There is a large, black dog with white markings in the center of the image, seated in front of the men and facing the viewer. The sidewalk wraps around the building in the left side of the image, and the fronts of several cars are visible in the center left side of the image, parked diagonally along a street.
