Description:
In this glossy black and white group photograph of six men and a boy we see a hunting party posed with their guns in front of the home of Mr. Sisson. The boy is probably Frank Hood and the man to the left of him may be his older brother, Thomas Hood. The other men identified by name are Mr. Sisson and George Burrell. In the background to the left of the group a horse waits patiently with a wagon perhaps to take them on their hunting trip.
Notes:
Other "J. HOOD" photographs similar in size and mounting which helped in identifying and dating are: "John (?) and Frank Hood shooting in the woods near London, Ontario." and "At Komoka on the Thames River, near London, Ontario."

The geographic location given is for Sisson's Saw Mill.
