A man in the far left is leaning over the music of one of the musicians. One of the men is seated at a piano in the front right of the image. The piano has pine boughs on it. A man sits at a drum set in the background. Behind him is a wall covered in boughs. Beside them is a white wall decorated with garland and images. In front of the band is a small Christmas tree and boughs decorated with lights. On reverse of photograph is written on in pencil: "Acadia Gentlemen of Swing 1949".
