This black and white photograph features a group of nine young men in dark pants and white shirts standing on a slat of wood and holding on to ropes that are tied to the trailer hitch of a vehicle. A man to the right is seen crouching to take a photograph and a backboard with a basketball hoop is seen to the left. Trees are seen lining the area behind the men. The white edges of the photograph are scalloped. "Camp Shelby 3/42 Leveling off the basketball court!" is handwritten on the back of the photograph.
