A great portrait of a "neighborhood camping party". Four wagons and horse teams are parked behind the group of men and women. Camp stoves, tables, and tents are in the foreground. All the people are dressed in outdoor clothing.
This is a copy of a drawing titled "Home Villa of General Lafayette E. Cartee. Corner of Fourth and Grove Streets. Boise City, I. T." depicting a mansion with horse and buggy passing by during the time of the Idaho Territory (pre-1890).
