An enclosed farmyard scene, showing a courtyard of ramshackle buildings in disrepair with uneven rooves and windows. There is a single woman standing in the yard to the right, carrying a child in her arms, and a second woman is standing beneath a porch over the doorway in the wall to the left. Some farmyard tools are leaning against the right wall by a water-bath, and some chickens are scratching round the ground.
