This stereograph features a group of women seated on the rocks at a beach with men and horse and wagons on the sandy portion of the beach. A large, Victorian house, an eight-story tall castle-like structure with turrets, decorative spires, fanciful roof dormers and an observation tower, known as Cliff House, is seen on the edge of the bluffs behind the people. The publisher's name is printed on either end of the images and the title of the image and copyright are printed along the bottom right edge. The back of the stereograph provides a brief history of the beach, the house, and bluffs pictured.
