Description Black and white photograph of Macadam road with houses on the left and trees on the right, 7.25"x5", 1916. Landscape orientation, with glossy finish.

The photograph shows a dirt (macadam) road running back from the bottom edge of the photograph. On the left side of the road is a small but continuous mound of dirt, an area of scrub brush, electrical or telephone lines with wires, a field, and a grouping of buildings, including a house. The house is light in color with a light roof (or snow-dusted roof) with several hipped sections. There are other small structures near the house. On the right side of the road is another row of dirt with scrub brush, a low barbed wire fence with wooden posts, electrical or telephone poles with wires, a field, and many leafy trees.

The photograph is printed on Kodak paper, and 'S039-1 P020' is printed or stamped on the back in black ink (near the left edge). In the top right corner, there is handwriting in black ink:
