Photograph of a full length portrait of two men, depicting a comedic scene. On the left is a man seated on the rung of a ladder mimicking the playing of a fiddle using a bellows as the fiddle and a broomstick as the bow. On the right sits a man, right side profile, wearing a checked suit and playing a real fiddle. In the background hang two saws and a hat from the door frame of a building.
