This black and white photographic postcard depicts a house being relocated to another area. It is on a platform with wheels. One person is standing at the doorway of the house and is waving. To the right of the house are eight men. The man closest to the house has his foot on the cable tie. The two men in the middle are holding tools. A man is on the right side of the image. He is standing on top of the spool of cable and holding his hat up in the air. There are trees in the background and an open space of grass in the foreground.
