Mounted on board, unframed.

Three children play on a huge mound of hay, left, as two men, lower right corner, carry a load of hay up a road that angles off to the right in the background. One man in tan with a yellow hat holds a shovel, the other in white shirt and blue pants pushes a wheelbarrow of hay. A sign, "Block 32" stands at the left side of the road. In the foreground, patches of green grass bookend tall brown grass. In the background left, behind the haystack are barracks and the outline of tall trees in fall foliage; to the right a watchtower and barbed wire fence appear in the distance.

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