Chili Ave./Rochester, N.Y.", depicting a white house among trees with a white picket fence in foreground. Unsigned, but likely by the Rochester artist James Harris (New York, 1811-1874). Ink inscription en verso reads "Jan. 3th 1865/Presented by Mr. Harris (Artist)". Red writing en verso reads "Turner Grandma D born there. Give to Geo. Duncan unless you want it".

Findagrave.com states that James Harris, father of landscape painter Edwin Landseer Harris, was the longest-serving teacher of landscape painting in Rochester, NY in the 19th Century and was the first teacher of noted landscape painter Norton Bush.
