Sepia photograph of three men standing in front of a two storey wooden building (in the left of the photograph). One man on the right, Alex Houston, is holding a set of iron jail bars; they are resting on the ground and the man is holding them at the top, and they have been turned vertically so the bars look like ladder rungs. He is wearing a hat and three piece suit, and has a mustache. The man to his left is wearing a light coloured three piece suit, a hat, and is smoking a pipe. The man on the far left of the photograph appears to be younger than the other two men, and is wearing a cap and high-waisted pants. He is looking down at the jail bars. On the bottom of the photograph is writing in white which reads "7. The end of the gaol [jail] of 1858-9." These jail bars are from the old jail in the village of Derby, a village which burnt down in 1859. The jail bars in the photograph are currently (2019) on display in the Langley Centennial Museum. The house in the background appears to be the Houston House at Derby.
