This black and white photograph features a Biloxi Oyster Schooner, a famous type of fishing boat of deep south water, out on the open water. Other boats can be seen behind it. A typed label on the back of the photograph, titled "Homeward Bound", describes the schooner and the importance of shrimp and oyster fishing on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. An inkstamp with the photagrapher's name is in a corner.
