This gelatin silver print depicts a black and white image of a man wearing a hat and gun holster. The man is wearing a long sleeve shirt, pants and a scarf around his neck. His arms are folded across his torso and he is looking directly at the camera. He is wearing a belt around his waist and the holster hangs just below it. Trees and a wooden fence are behind him. Text is written on the right border that reads [out west, washing]. A crease cuts across the man's face and extends across the width of the photograph. The edges and borders of the photograph are unevenly cut. The back of the photograph is covered in black paper and the remains of another photograph that has been torn away. In the bottom center there is an orange sticker with the number [809] written on it.
