Original glass plate negative. Side view of a car with the top folded back. Three boys are looking at the car: one boy stands in the driver's seat, one stands on a chair and leans into the engine, and the youngest sits on the running board, pointing toward the engine. There are leaves on the ground; houses, a fence, and bare trees are in the background.
