Title

Otto and DeEtte Galaway at their new home

Description

Black and white image of a two story house with a large front dormer in a steeply pitched roof. A covered porch surrounds two sides of the house. Lace curtains hang in the windows and a large dog lays on the porch. Three people stand or sit in the front yard behind a wire fence. A woman stands on one side of the front walkway, she wears a dress fitted at the waist and a deep v-neck revealing a high-necked white blouse underneath. Her hair is gathered into a loose bun on top of her head. On the other side of the sidewalk directly in front of the house an older woman sits in a carved rocking chair. She wears a dark skirt and a light colored Bishop style blouse. Her hair is pulled into a small bun on top of her head. The man standing at the right of the image wears a suit coat over a light-colored shirt and tie, high-waisted pants, and a 'bowler' style hat. A grey dappled horse stands next to him.
