A man, a woman, and children pose for a portrait on a porch beside a clapboard house in probably Silverdale (Clear Creek County), Colorado. Mr. Sam Bruce has a pipe and wears a derby hat, a vest over a shirt, and probably a fabric watch chain. A girl, Mary Alberta, wears a gathered plaid skirt, leggings, boots, and a lace collar over a jacket. A boy, probably Murray, sits and holds a hat, and wears a buttoned jacket. Mrs. Arabell Bruce wears a dress with a long pleated skirt and a velvet bust, a lace straight collar, and a necklace. A baby, probably Will, sits on Arabell's lap and wears a striped dress with a lace petticoat and collar and buttoned boots. A shaggy dog is by a window.
