A group of men in uniforms with hats, boots and a belt of ammo around there waist are standing outside a building. The way the shadow is cast on the figures, as well as around them we can ascertain that the light direction is coming from the left. Behind these figures on the left hand side of image we notice a horse drawn cart. Above the figures are two red shapes indicating an interior space.
