This black and white photographic postcard depicts a house being relocated to another area. The house is on a platform and four men are in front of the house. The man on the left is holding a long handled tool. The next man has his foot on the cable and is holding a tool. A man standing on the spool of cable has the American flag draped over him. The man on the right is holding his hat in the air. There are two horses tied up to the spool of cable. There are houses on either side and a bare tree in the foreground. Visible discoloration has turned the typed area at the bottom of the postcard blue and left a white spot on the bottom right.
