Black and white photograph, sepia-toned. In the background of the image is a two-storeyed house, with two visible chimneys and an arched window above its doorway. In the foreground, along a fence extending from the house, is a group of people who pose for the camera. At the far left there are four women standing behind two other seated individuals, an elderly man and elderly woman. The elderly man holds a baby, seated on his lap. At the right is a horse, with a white blaze-type marking down its face. To its right are three men, all moustachioed, the leftmost of which wears a hat. Its matting is thin and also sepia-toned, and is captioned "J.S. JENKINS, AYLMER." It is displayed in a silver-coloured wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The frame is carved with an ornate, organic pattern.
Photograph of a man, woman, child, and dog. They are sitting on chairs, with a dog on the mans lap and a baby on the womans lap. They are identified below as "Daddie and Rowlo, Momma and Hilda Somelly or Someily". The year 1910 is handwritten on the reverse.
In the background the backdrop for the photograph can be seen against a brick wall. Victorian-era photography studios often featured hand-painted backdrops with architectural features including ornate staircases, columns, and pillars. Nature scenes were also popular. Hand-painted scenic backdrops were popular in portrait photography studios from the 1860s until the 1920s.
