At center, Commander Richard Byrd descends from a train car. As he walks down the steps, he reaches out to shake George Noville's hand. George Noville stands with his back to camera and to the left of Commander Byrd. Behind George Noville, 3 men, including Alton Parker (leftmost), stand in a row at far left and watch Noville and Byrd shake hands. A couple more men stand up on the train car behind and to the right of Commander Byrd. The train is viewed close-up, and stretches back on an angle from right to left.
