A large tent is pictured in the center of this photograph. Old Main is to the left of the tent and Morrill Hall is on the right. Marston Hall (under construction) can be seen in the distance. A man in a horse-drawn wagon is in front of the tent.
The front (east) of Morrill Hall is partially obscured from view by trees. Marston Hall is visible in the background and the tracks for the Ames and College Railway (the Dinkey) are visible in the foreground.
