Mounted on wood and unframed.

In the lower left corner, two men carrying fishing poles and blue buckets walk along a path in front of a barracks. One man is dressed in tan pants and white short sleeve shirt, the other in dark brown pants and blue shirt. Both wear yellow hats. A woman hangs laundry on a clothesline between the barracks. Tall trees rise up behind and around the barracks. Parts of other buildings are visible in the trees on the left; tall green brush in the foreground.

Signed in medium, bottom left corner: H. Sugimoto, Camp Jerome Ark.
