Description

The chromolithograph depicts a farmyard scene where slaves are shown laboring around a fenced-in area with livestock. A house and several outbuildings are also pictured. The chromolithograph was enclosed in a brown wooden frame but was removed for preservation. It is in overall poor condition and has experienced multiple tears as well as the removal of its border space.
