A photograph of painters painting the exterior of McLeod Hospital. The building, painted white, is two stories, and shows the right side of the building and part of its front porch. A shed attached to the building's exterior is partially visible. On the left side of the image stand two African American men. They are facing toward each other, and are looking at the camera. They are standing next to a ladder in the yard. The man on the left is partially hidden in shadow, but he appears to be wearing a tight, long-sleeved shirt and has a short haircuit. The bristles of a paintbrush can be seen sticking out of his right hand, which he is holding on his hip. The man on the right is wearing a newsboy cap, a work shirt, pants, and is also holding a paintbrush. On the porch, hidden in shadow, are two men. The man closest to the edge of the porch appears to be standing on something to elevate his height, but this object is unidentifiable. He is holding a paintbrush full of white paint in his right hand to the exterior. A man in a light-colored painting outfit stands behind him on the porch. On the back of the image is written in ink, ""Painting McLeod Hospital at Bethune-Cookman, March 1929.""
