Albumen print on thin paper of India ink sketch depicting a view of Port Jefferson, titled "Port Jefferson" with collaged element. Foreground consists of white picket fenced area with headstones and grave plots on top of hill; cluster of three figures on left side, one man sketching on paper looking out towards the harbor, woman and child on left looking to the left. Midground progresses into densely wooded horizontal strip which opens to reveal numerous buildings nestled alongside roads and fields; harbor in center of painting, several steamboats visible sailing across the water. View recedes toward the horizon line, which transitions into relatviely plain sky above. Details originally found in original ink sketch possibly missing in this lower definition albumen print, variations in pigment reduced to variations in greys that are more difficult to distinguish. Print mounted to original cardboard backing with inscription and signature on verso, reading "This is a photographic copy taken from an India ink drawing by Edward Lange Artist Elwood, Suffolk Co. N. York if any further copies are wanted please address the above", adhesive surrounding print indicates additional matting once present surrounding the perimeter.
