Photograph of two men seated in a boat, moored on the edge of Glena Bay, Killarney. The men face one another. They both wear dark colour hats, light colour shirts and trousers. The reflection of the men and the boat can be seen on the surface of the water beside them. In the middle ground is a wooden fence and a forested area. Glena Mountain is visible in the distant background.

A carbon copy is adhered on top of the original albumen print. Carbon prints are more stable compared to albumen prints, the latter prone to fading. Carbon copies were therefore created for posterity.
