A watercolor sketch of an African-American man with a shoe shining kit and chair. A sign on the chair reads "It is a shame of you and disgrace to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to wear your boots so dirty when you can get a shine for 5 cents from A. Turner." The image is inscribed "A.E." and "A. Elliot" in different places near the bottom edge of the image.
