This is a photographic negative of an Oakland Oaks base runner about to reach home plate. The catcher (#3) is motioning toward the Oak runner and the play will be close. The runner has his right foot in front of him and almost about to land on the plate as he was caught in this photo hovering in the air. The umpire is holding his mask with his left hand and is watching the play closely from behind the plate. The shot was taken from behind the plate and just to the right.
