Black and white image of two women seated on either side of a smoldering fire in the forest. The woman on the left sits on a small bench and has a small dog at her side and a coffee pot sits off to the right of her feet. Across the fire, the young woman is seated on a wagon seat that has been set on the ground. She holds a rifle in her lap. Both of the women wear simple dresses. In the background is a wagon with blankets piled beneath it and several other rifles and an ax leaning against the larger rear wheel. Two horses, unharnessed, are tethered behind the wagon. Museum records do not identify the women specifically, but this image is one of a number of glass negative plates donated by Thomas Clapshaw.
