Exterior, three quarters view of the living quarters of the Japanese workers at Rancho Sespe. The building is two stories tall, with exterior staircases on the side, a chimney, and porch.

The passengers appear to be white. A Japanese man stands next to the carriage with his hands behind his back. He may be a chauffeur for the people in the carriage. Each person is gazing towards the viewer.
