7 men pose for a photo. They are wearing winter clothes of native design, furs or skin coats and skin footwear. There is a dog in the front row. One man has a pipe in his mouth and another man has a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. A sign on the building behind them reads, "Turner" which likely refers to Turner Street.

These men are most likely members of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police and the building behind them is the Court House which at one time served as barracks for the police.
