The image features Harry and Fred Lovett along the left side standing next to a pick-up truck with "Guelph, Signs, Lovett, Signman" printed on the driver's side door. There is another car parked in the foreground with "Guelph" printed along the hood and "I'll Sign Anything" on the driver's side door. The vehicles are parked in front of a long white building with a pitched roof and windows and a door visible along the front. Above the door attached to the roof is a sign that reads "Lovett Signs".
