This sepia print has the words 'The Carpenter, Blacksmith. etc' underneath it. The photograph shows a scene on the deck of a Dundee whaler. In the foreground a bearded man is sawing lengthways down a plank of wood. The wood is supported on a trestle, while the man's foot is holding it steady. To the right of the carpenter a younger man is sitting on a barrel, stroking a dog. He has a short pipe in the left corner of his mouth and his feet are not touching the deck. Between the two, a young boy is sitting on the deck, possibly asleep. There is an anvil in the right foreground, with a man in profile behind. In the background is another bearded man.
