A partial brick wall stands on the far end of the ruins on the left. An intact brick building stands on the opposite side of the shed on the right. "The Baker Art Studio, Portrait and Commercial Photographers, 93 Washington Ave. Detroit, Mich." is stamped on the verso, along with an order number form with the numbers 91393.
