Black and white image of three men gathered around a campfire. One man stands at the far side of the fire, near a table with pots and pans. Another sits on a stump at the right of the image, and appears to be feeding the dog at his feet. A third man leans against a bench looking over his shoulder at the camera. A dog noses about beside him, and two fishing poles lean against the front of the bench. A weathered wooden building can be seen in the right background of the image, and debris and clothing are scattered about the ground and on the bench and tables. A fishing creel sits on a makeshift table at the right of the image. Museum records do not identify the men specifically, but this image is one of a number of glass negative plates donated by Thomas Clapshaw.
