Ezra Meeker stands next to this automobile dressed in a blazer, button-up vest, trousers, boots, and hat. He has a mustache and beard and wears eyeglasses. Spectators stand next to the "schooner-mobile" that is situated on a road in front of a building with a banner that reads, "B.F. Goodrich Rubber Co.".
