A color photograph of Dub Room, Channel One Studios on Maxfield Avenue in Kingston, Jamaica.
There is a set of black doors with two metal locks in the middle. The proper right door reads [DUB / ONE] and the proper left door reads [ROOM / LOVE] in white. There is a white plastic garbage bin on the proper left side with a piece of corrugated material in it.
Each of the images has a white border around it. The borders are thinner on the tops and bottoms and thicker on the sides. The border for 2015.132.160.2 is slightly thicker because the image is slightly smaller. The backs of the photographs have two Kodak logos repeated in gold. The logos are in diagonal lines. There is an inscription on the bottom of 2015.132.160.1, handwritten by Bill Adler.
