DescriptionA Massey-Harris combine on a truck. A tarp is stretched from one side of the truck to the ground, perhaps as a tent. There is a trailer parked behind the truck with five people beside it -- two men sitting on boxes, a woman sitting on a camp chair while another woman combs her hair and a boy sitting on the ground. A house is visible in the distance.
