A black-and-white photographic postcard titled, “M91 A round up crew ready to ‘set out’.” by Charles E. Morris. The photograph, taken in Chinook, Montana, depicts a group of eleven men mounted on horseback, and seated in horse carts, in front of a large group of horses.

The cowboys and horses are standing on a grassy plane with low hills and white clouds in the background. The reverse is white with black printed text. It reads [POST CARD.] across the top center.
