A middle-aged gentleman wearing a three-piece suit with a striped tie calmly sits in front of an ivy-lined house. He is also wearing round glasses and a cap, and his overcoat is folded over his left hand. The house that he poses in front of has paneled windows that look into its basement, as well as a wooden staircase that leads up to the front entrance. Large bushels of ivy are growing around the front of the house and drape over the railings of the staircase, adding a charming detail to its exterior. Judging by the way that the sunlight strikes the man's face, the photograph appears to have been taken during the morning.
