Descriptive UO Title
General NotesA white man wearing a dark felt hat, wool jacket, white shirt, and dark pants sits under a striped tipi-style canvas tent behind a wooden packing box that is serving him as a desk. The man has been identified as Lee Moorhouse. He has a bushy moustache and wears glasses; his hair is cropped short and his hairline receding. The sides of the tent are rolled up and tied to the poles inside, and he sits framed by two poles. Tied to the pole on the right is a flat leather bag. In the background trees are visible; the deciduous trees have leaves. Inside the tent behind the man a pile of striped blankets and other gear is visible. The man's attention is on his hands; his head is bent down and he appears to be whittling a short piece of wood with a knife. On the top of his "desk" are laid out pieces of paper. A small piece of money is in the corner of the desk, near a receipt book. To the right on the ground in front and to the side of the "desk" are an open umbrella and some type of wooden bin, cart, or wheelbarrow. In front of the packing box is a pile of gear including a large graniteware bucket, a smaller graniteware pitcher or coffeepot, a graniteware or cast iron dish with a lid, and what looks like a lard bucket with a white salt shaker on top.
TCI NotesOutside photograph of a man sitting under a canvas tent behind a desk type table which has money in coins and bills and what appears to be a receipts book in the front of the table are pans, buckets. The numbers in the lower left hand corner reads ""5036
